A Colin Cowie Weddings cocktail favorite: the Manhattan.
2 ounces blended whiskey
1 ounce Italian sweet vermouth
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Pour all ingredients over ice in a mixing glass and stir as you would a martini. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.
Note: If you prefer a dry Manhattan, use dry vermouth and garnish with a lemon peel.
