The Perfect Manhattan Cocktail Recipe

The Manhattan Cocktail originated in NoMad New York

The Manhattan is one of the most famous cocktails ever. It is another cocktail that first originated here in NoMad, as many believe it was created at the Manhattan Club for the first time in the 1870s.

3/4 oz. Sweet Vermouth
2 1/2 oz. Blended Bourbon
dash Angostura bitters
2 or 3 Ice cubes
1 Maraschino cherry
1 twist of Orange peel

Mixing instructions:
Combine the vermouth, whiskey, bitters and ice in a mixing glass. Stir gently, don’t bruise the spirits
and cloud the drink. Place the cherry in a chilled cocktail glass and strain the whiskey mixture over
the cherry. Rub the cut edge of the orange peel over the rim of the glass and twist it over the drink to
release the oils but don’t drop it in.
