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.

Ingredients

  • 2 fluid ounces whiskey
  • 1/2 fluid ounce sweet vermouth
  • 1 dash bitters (optional)
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1 maraschino cherry for garnish

Directions

  1. 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.

Footnotes

  • 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.
