The Recipe for the Delicious Boothby Cocktail!

Makes 1 drink

This recipe, adapted from John Burton's version, uses more vermouth than the Manhattan's standard 3-to-1 ratio, slightly shifting focus away from the whiskey.

    *  2 ounces bourbon

    * 1 ounce sweet vermouth

    * 1 to 2 dashes Angostura bitters

    * 1 ounce Brut Champagne or sparkling  wine

    * Maraschino or brandy-soaked cherry for garnish

Instructions: Place the bourbon, sweet vermouth and bitters in a mixing glass. Fill two-thirds with ice, stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Pour Champagne on top to fill. Add garnish.
