Perfect Manhattans

Is this the best cocktail in the world? In the Universe?  I think so.  It is simply the best drink ever - and yes, it doesn't even have Campari in it!  You need the best ingredients - Woodford Reserve bourbon (2 parts),  then 1/2 part each of Noilly Prat White Vermouth and Antica Formula Carpano Rosso Vermouth, with 2 dashes of Angostura Bitters, a lemon zest twist and a proper Maraschino cherry, stirred (not shaken!) over ice and served in a chilled Martini glass.  One has to be a perfectionist when it comes to perfection!  I was very happy drinking this with the Cheese Palmiers from an earlier entry - very happy indeed.  It helps that the Hubby is a pretty good barman.
