The Manhattan. Whiskey’s answer to the venerable Gin Martini. The Manhattan is a heavyweight of the cocktail world.
Was it invented for Churchill’s mother? Unlikely, but it’s a nice tale.

- 35ml Sweet Vermouth
- 2-3 dashes of Bitters

Place the ingredients, with ice, into a mixing glass and stir well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the cherry. Enjoy!!
