Cocktails With Walter

The thought of getting a mixed drink from a bottle scares me a bit, but apparently it didn't bother Walter Pidgeon enough for this mid 60s ad for Heublein Cocktails.

For those of you playing at home, one version of the Manhattan:

3/4 oz sweet vermouth
2 1/2 oz bourbon whiskey
1 dash Angostura® bitters
1 maraschino cherry
1 twist orange peel

I'm partial to Brandy Old Fashioned Sweets myself...

What a great fellow Walter Pidgeon was, & thanks for posting the swell- looking ad--great tweed and foulard!
