Although this drink looks deceptively like a classic whiskey-based Manhattan, one sip tells differently. The plummy notes of Slivovitz hit the palate first, finishing with the herbal notes of Becherovka.
1 1/2 ounces Becherovka
1 1/2 ounces Slivovitz 5-year-old
1 dash Angostura bitters
Splash of cherry juice
Maraschino cherry, for garnish
In a cocktail shaker, combine all liquid ingredients with ice. Shake well, and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with cherry. — Reuters
