TGIF! Classic Manhattan Cocktail: A Good Drink (& a Bad Joke)
Candy cane martinis? Green Grinch midori cocktails? That all may be fine if you’re going for a Animal House-meets-Christmas Vacation sort of holiday theme. As for us, we’re in the mood for a little glamour, of the Hollywood-in-the-1940s sort.
True, there’s nothing overtly “Christmas-y” about a classic Manhattan. But one decorous sip of that timeless combo of good bourbon and sweet vermouth (shaken with a dash of bitters), and you feel all warm and fireplace-cozy inside. Whether you decide to put Bing Crosby on the turntable is entirely up to you.
And now for our special TGIF bad joke, which we provide as a public service of sorts. Remember, when you think the joke is funny, it’s time to put the liquor away:
Q: What do you get when you cross a sheep and a bee?
A: A bah-humbug.
Merry Christmas everyone!
