MermaidMary’s cocktail this week is from the team at Cocktail Mail in Christchurch. Cocktail Mail mixes quality spirits with handcrafted shrubs and syrups to create delicious cocktails to enjoy at home.

Cocktail Mail cocktails come in kits for an interactive approach or individually bottled and ready to serve. Just chill and enjoy.

This week's cocktail is a Black Forest Manhattan. Partly because it is perfect for this time of year, but mainly because Wendyl loves Rye.

50ml Rye
25ml Sweet Vermouth
10ml Creme de Mure
4 drops Chocolate bitters

Stir over ice and strain into a chilled Martini glass or over large cubes of ice in a rocks glass.  

Finish with a brandied Cherry.
