The Manhattan

The Manhattan, a classic cocktail is believed to date back to the late 1800s. When properly built, the Manhattan is the only cocktail that can slug it out toe-to-toe with the martini. It's bold and fortifying.


    • 2 1/2 oz Whiskey 
    • 3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth 
    • 1 dash Angostura® bitters 
    • 1 maraschino cherry 
    • 1 twist orange peel

Mix It

  • 1. Combine the bourbon whiskey, vermouth, and bitters with 2 – 3 ice cubes in a mixing glass 
  • 2. Stir gently, don’t bruise the spirits and cloud the drink
  • 3. Place the cherry in a chilled cocktail glass and strain the whiskey mixture over the cherry
  • 4. 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
