My fellow friends and I felt so inspired by The Cocktail Party, we decided to start a DC Chapter of our own last week. We invite you to join The Cocktail Party DC Chapter on Facebook. Come post-turkey, we’ll be sipping on this Midnight Manhattan from Epicurious.
– 1.5 oz cherry-infused Woodford Reserve Bourbon
– 1.5 oz cherry-infused Graham’s Six Grapes Port
– Ice cubes
To garnish: 3 spirits-soaked cherries
For the cherry-infused spirits:
– 1 cup fresh cherries, pitted
– 8 oz Woodford Reserve Bourbon
– 8 oz Graham’s Six Grapes Port
Put 1/2 cup of cherries into each of two clean jam jars. Top one jar with bourbon and the other with port, and store them in the fridge for a week. To serve, strain the alcohol (reserving the cherries) and combine the bourbon and port in a highball glass over ice (Plonk shakes it with ice and strains into a martini glass). Garnish with the spirits-soaked fruit. Serves 1.
