"One of the great classic cocktails, this one's made the old fashioned way -- with rye whiskey."

I like this cocktail made with dry vermouth and an olive.

THE best cocktail in my opinion. Make your own Brandied Cherries instead of the nasty neon red store bought cherries.

Finest, easiest, most interesting cocktail around - rye whisky gives it a distinctive edge, and don't forget those bitters!

I'm new to the world of Manhattans, so take my comments in that context. That being said, I have two things to say... "Yum!" and "Be careful..." :-) I see this as a terrific starting point....

Rye Manhattan is mine and my husband's fav drink....25 years now. We don't use the bitters though. C-Bisket...gonna make your grandmas cherry dessert soon!

Very nice. We prefer a little less vermouth, but that's easy to adjust.

I'd have given a 5 but whiskey is never shaken and a Manhattan is not supposed to be frothy. Ask any old time bartender.

Try the black and gold version using chocolate bitters. It's awesome. You're welcome!
