West entry PiedPk archit detail

I’m feeling…static Friday.

A recent in-law party has led me to…a (temporary?) fascination with Manhattans.

My variation: rye (not “regular” bourbon)—the “original” recipe.

Which raises the question: Are there non-HFC maraschino cherries out there (in the accessible world)?

In the meantime, bottoms up!

    I’m having my Friday Gim-Atomic. Pretty much like Thursday’s!
    What’s a “HFC” Maraschino Cherry?

  2. Sherry says:

    Enjoying a brown ale with homemade pizza for family movie night (Scooby Doo)

  3. Sammy says:

    HFC = high fructose corn syrup (not an ingredient I prefer to consume)

  4. kayak woman says:

    Probably not (non-HFC cherries). I often just leave them out. I do have a jar of them in Maker’s Mark 😉

  5. Sammy says:

    Oh, yum! I will try that!
