Bourbon and Sweet Wine Manhattan (Fauxhatten)

"Fauxhattan because I have no sweet vermouth. But! I found an *expensive* bottle of Barolo chinato cocchi buried in the liquor cabinet. If you’re the person who gifted me this incredible bottle, please let me know because I’m horrible and forgot."
-- @justinchapple

When you're hankering for a classic but you need to adapt. This classic Manhattan inspired bourbon cocktail has a little twist with substituting sweet vermouth with sweet wine! Garnish with luxardo cherries!
