Manhattan Slim

1/2 shot Ocean Spray Diet Cranberry Juice
2 Shots Bulleit Bourbon
3 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters

Put everything but the cherry in a shaker with ice. Shake-shake-shake until it’s arctic, and little chips of ice are floating on top. Tuck your cherry in a cocktail glass, and ease the drink right in.
