This is my version of the classically sophisticated Manhattan. I use Calvados as an innovative partner to the traditional Bourbon. Apple Manhattan Cocktail.
- 2½ ounce rye, bourbon, or blended canadian whiskey
- 1 ounce calvados
- 2 dash bitters
Stir the liquid ingredients in a mixing glass filled with ice. Strain the mixture into a cocktail glass and garnish with a wedge of crisp apple.
