A Manhattan is a cocktail made with whiskey, sweet vermouth, and bitters. Commonly used whiskeys include rye, Canadian whisky, bourbon, blended whiskey and Tennessee whiskey.


1/4 oz  Sweet Vermouth
2 oz  Bourbon Whisky
2 dashes  Angostura Bitters
Maraschino Cherry

Combine the vermouth, bourbon whiskey, and bitters with 2 - 3 ice cubes in a mixing glass. Stir gently, don't bruise the spirits and cloud the drink. Place the cherry in a chilled cocktail glass and strain the whiskey mixture over the cherry. Rub the cut edge of the orange peel over the rim of the glass and twist it over the drink to release the oils but don't drop it in. 

Served: Straigh up or with ice.
Standard Garnish: Maraschino cherry.
Drinkware: Cocktail glass.
