How to Make the Perfect Manhattan

My mom has always held her Manhattan close to her heart.  She always orders it the same way, stirred not shaken- rocks on the side, and until recently never veered from her go-to whiskey- Canadian Club. Recently, she’s been choosing Bourbon in lieu of her Canadian whiskey.  It’s simple to make a perfect manhattan you just need to choose your favorite whiskey and follow these simple steps.


2 ounces whiskey

2 ounces of sweet vermouth (the red one)

a couple of dashes of bitters

maraschino cherry, for garnish

In an cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the whiskey, sweet vermouth and bitters.

Stir until well- chilled.

Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry.
