Cuban Manhattan Recipe

Total Time: Under 5 mins | Active Time: | Makes: 1 drink

This tropical rendition of the classic Manhattan cocktail is made with rum instead of bourbon.

What to buy: Flor de Caña is a wonderful gold rum from Nicaragua that we think makes a delightfully dry Manhattan, perfect for those who don’t favor the sweetness of the regular version.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 1/2 ounces Flor de Caña rum
  • 1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
  • Dash of angostura bitters
  • Maraschino cherry, for garnish
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Combine the rum, vermouth, and bitters in a shaker with ice, and shake gently. Strain over a maraschino cherry in a martini glass.
