I recently picked up a bottle of Redemption Rye and had to try it out in my favourite cocktail. Success beyond my wildest expectations: it's a stunning spirit that really enhances the spice -- in particular the vanilla -- in the vermouth/bitters. This is now my go-to Manhattan whiskey.
2 oz. Redemption Rye
1 oz. Antica Formula
4 drops Abbott's bitters
Luxardo maraschino cherry to garnish
Stir over ice, strain and garnish with the maraschino cherry.
