True Manhattan is a classic drink served with some cherry juice in and garnish with a maraschino cherry. Served this in “incline seagreen tableware piece” to make it a perfect drink for everyone.
- 2 fluid ounces whiskey
- 1/2 fluid ounce sweet vermouth
- 1 dash bitters (optional)
- 1 cup ice cubes
- 1 maraschino cherry for garnish
- Place ice in a mixing glass. Pour in vermouth, then whiskey, and stir. Strain into a cocktail glass. Add a dash of bitters if desired, and garnish with a cherry.
To make a Dry Manhattan
Use the same recipe, but substitute dry vermouth for the sweet, and garnish with a twist of lemon peel instead of a cherry.
