The Manhattan

Scott Phillips

Servings: 1

Spicy rye whiskey is traditionally used to make a proper Manhattan, but if rye isn’t to your liking, bourbon is an acceptable and tasty alternative.


  • 2 fl. oz. (1/4 cup) rye whiskey
  • 1 fl. oz. (2 Tbs.) sweet vermouth
  • 2 dashes bitters, preferably Angostura
  • 1 maraschino cherry


  • Pour the whiskey, vermouth, and bitters into a mixing glass over ice. Stir for approximately 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail or martini glass. Garnish with the maraschino cherry.
