More About This Menu
- You can batch-make Manhattans in order to avoid playing bartender all night. Scale up the rye, vermouth, and bitters, stir well in a large vessel with big ice cubes that won't quickly melt, and then pour into individual glasses and finish with maraschino cherries.
- The roast will need to sit for ten minutes before carving, which gives you ten minutes to put the finishing touches on the rest of the meal.
- Make the honey-nut tart a day in advance; gild the lily by serving it with vanilla ice cream.
