Vanilla Manhattan

Bourbon naturally has a creaminess from vanillin pulled from the oak barrels during the aging process. The inclusion of vanilla simple syrup accentuates & further smooths it for an “extra aged” flavor.

  • 2 ½oz Bourbon (we used Bulleit)
  • 1/2oz Sweet Vermouth
  • 3 dashes Scrappy’s Aromatic Bitters (could substitute Angostura Bitters)
  • 1/4oz Vanilla Simple Syrup
  • Garnish: Orange Twist and/or Luxardo Cherry



Combine the bourbon, vermouth, bitters and simple syrup in a mixing glass with ice.

Stir until well chilled.

Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice & garnish with the orange and/or cherry. Serve.
