About the Recipe

The Manhattan Cocktail is a classic cocktail that has been around since the late 1800s. It is made with whiskey, sweet vermouth, and bitters. The exact origins of the Manhattan are uncertain, but it is believed to have originated at the Manhattan Club in New York City in the 1870s. The traditional recipe calls for rye whiskey, however, today it is often made with bourbon or Canadian whiskey. The Manhattan is typically garnished with a maraschino cherry and served in a chilled cocktail glass. The drink is known for its rich and complex flavor, with notes of sweet vermouth, whiskey, and a hint of bitters, making it a perfect balance of sweet and bitter. The Manhattan is considered a classic cocktail that is perfect for any occasion, and it is often associated with the image of sophistication and glamour.
