The Manhattan

The Manhattan is another 'old-school' bourbon cocktail that was developed in the late 1890s. Many variations exist, but here's the original (and International Bartender Association approved!) recipe.


  • 2 oz Bourbon


  • 1 oz Sweet vermouth
  • 2-3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Garnish: 1 Maraschino cherry


  1. Pour bourbon, sweet vermouth, and bitters into a mixing glass filled with ice.


  2. Stir until outside of shaker is very cold to touch
  3. Strain in to a chilled cocktail glass – garnish with cherry.
