True Manhattan

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

A classic drink. Stir, most Manhattan drinkers like it that way. Shake it only when asked to do so. May be served up or on the rocks.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • 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.
