About this Manhattan Transfer whiskey cocktail: great balance. You know, like you need strap-hanging on the Uptown Express. In this case, it’s about the sweetness of the whiskey and the vermouth offset by the gourmet tartness of the cherries and smoky infused notes of subtle-citrusy bergamot. A dash of orange bitters evens it all out. Next stop, Flavortown.
