Well, Major League Drinks continues with Major League Baseball team #2 ….the New York Yankees! This one’s for Kmess even though it pains me, but since I did the Mets the other day, I figure let me cover the other New York baseball team! (As I slowly roll my eyes).
When people think of New York, they think of Manhattan. There’s even a drink named after the city so obviously that has to be the drink of the New York Yankees (even though they play in the Bronx, but close enough).
Team: New York Yankees
Drink: Manhattan By Garnish With a Lemon
-3 oz whisky or bourbon
-1 capful of dry vermouth
-1 capful of sweet vermouth
-1 dash bitters (optional)
-2 to 3 drops of maraschino cherry juice
-2 maraschino cherries for garnish
Mix it up:
1. Place ice cubes in a low ball glass until almost filled
2. Add first 5 ingredients in order listed
3. Stir well then top with maraschino cherries
Keep it classy, Yanks fans.
