"The Manhattan is a classic cocktail believed to date back to the late 1800s. It's made with a bracing mixture of bourbon or rye whiskey mixed with sweet vermouth and a dash of Angostura bitters."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I was given many years ago the recipe for 'the perfect Manhattan' as follows: 2 oz. 100 proof bourbon (like Jeremiah Weed), 1 oz. extra dry Vermouth, 5 drops bitters, 1-2 Maraschino cherries plus 1 teaspoon cherry juice. Serve over ice or not. You won't order it 'out' as others will not be as good.
This is a true classic- bracing for sure but yummy all the same.
Been a favorite for almost 30 years.
Great classic! Thank you for saying STIR...never SHAKE....it ruins the whiskey! We love it with bourbon.
Classic indeed! I prefer to use bourbon. While I don't typically enjoy sweet cocktails, this one straddles the fence between sweet and smoky....
