manhattan cocktail 


This is the classic Manhattan cocktail, pure and simple. I like it best with a cognac-marinated fresh cherry rather than the maraschino. If you like your drink really sweet, you can also add a little maraschino liqueur.



  • 2 oz rye whiskey
  • 1 oz sweet vermouth
  • Dash of Angostura bitters
  • Maraschino cherry or twist


Shake rye, vermouth and bitters with cracked ice.

Strain into cocktail glass.

Garnish with a cherry or twist
