"A classic drink. Stir, most Manhattan drinkers like it that way. Shake it only when asked to do so. May be served up or on the rocks."

My grandma had one of these every night for years and years and she lived to be 93! I agree that the correct recipe should be 2 parts whiskey to 1 part vermouth. Add a little cherry juice, ser...
