Manhattan Cocktail Reviews

  • I was given many years ago the recipe for the perfect Manhattan as follows: 2 oz. 100 proof bourbon (like Jeremiah Weed), 1 oz. extra dry Vermouth, 5 drops bitters, 1-2 Maraschino cherries plus 1 teaspoon cherry juice. Serve over ice or not. You wont order it out as others will not be as good.

  • This is a true classic- bracing for sure but yummy all the same.

  • Been a favorite for almost 30 years.

  • Classic indeed I prefer to use bourbon. While I dont typically enjoy sweet cocktails, this one straddles the fence between sweet and smoky....

  • Great classic Thank you for saying STIR...never ruins the whiskey We love it with bourbon.

  • My favorite drink. I do not care for it with Bourbon though. I usually use a Canadian whiskey. Its strong, so I avoid serving it to novice drinkers or those who like sweet drinks.

  • You have to have a basic understanding of vermouth before diving into this recipe. This recipe is fabulous (5 Star) using a good sweet vermouth. Those preferring drinks on the sweeter side can even bump that up towards a fullThe alternate recipe from Martha is also fabulous, but using dry vermouth makes it something other than a true Manhattan. There are also other high quality red vermouth on the market now

  • Yummy

  • Outstanding libation of the soul

  • Great recipe and this for someone who likes a strong drink. 1oz vermouth will soften it and slightly more than 1oz will be the perfect way your wife will like it. Luxardo cherries are a must. Dont go too cheap on your rye choice either and a great drink this will be.

  • Good

  • A classic recipe I like to use Rittenhouse or Bulleit Rye. Dolin sweet vermouth is very good.
