So my husband is on a low carb diet. Sadly, this means he can’t partake in my awesome Chocolate Martini’s. However, that doesn’t mean he can’t imbibe a decent cocktail. This Manhattan is made with Knob Creek Bourbon, Sweet Vermouth, two types of bitters and a cherry! Ok, so cherries aren’t low carb but I eat the cherry anyway
The key to this recipe is using a decent bourbon as well as good bitters. For this cocktail I used Angostura bitters as well as Whiskey Barrel-Aged Bitters. The combination of these ingredients really takes the cocktail over the edge!
Here’s a mid bitter’s action shot!
Shake it up, pour it in, and add a cherry! Enjoy!
