Master distillers and premier whiskey makers Jimmy and Eddie Russell have brought nearly 100 years of combined experience to artfully crafting Russell's Reserve 10 Year Old Bourbon. Bottled at 90 proof, this hand selected small batch bourbon has a rich, caramel and vanilla taste and a uniquely smooth finish.
This is a great bourbon for a Manhattan cocktail. The extra ABV means the bourbon doesn't get lost in the vermouth and the drink doesn't get too watered down by the ice. A garnish of citrus peel rather than the traditional maraschino cherries will keep it from being too sweet.
45ml Russell's Reserve
25ml Rosso Vermouth
Dash of Fee Brothers Old Fashioned Bitters
Dash of Fee Brothers Orange Bitters
Combine ingredients with ice in a shaker and stir with a spoon to chill. Pour into a chilled rocks glass and garnish with a twist of orange peel. In summer, a splash of soda water will liven it up.
