Manhattan Cocktail

Manhattan Cocktail

A true classic cocktail, boozy but delicious.


  • 2 oz Rye Whiskey
  • 1 oz Sweet Vermouth
  • 1 dash Angostura Bitters or Orange
  • 1 Cocktail Cherry use a high quality one, please


  • Chill a martini glass or coupe
  • Add liquid ingredients to ice filled mixing glass
  • Stir for 30 seconds and strain into glass
  • Garnish with Cherry


The ratio of Rye to Vermouth can be adjusted to preference, but 1:1 is way too much vermouth and 1:4 is way too little to be sure. Options include serving on the rocks or using Orange Bitters instead of Angostura
