In The Classics

Few cocktails are as iconic as the Manhattan, a drink known for its stiff flavor profile and exacting measurements. Some people confuse the Manhattan with the Old Fashioned — both have whiskey, both have bitters, some Old Fashioneds include a cherry… it’s easy to see why people can mix them up. One way I’ve always found useful to remember which is which, is that the Manhattan is always served ‘up’ in a Coupe or Martini glass. Up, like a skyscraper. So just remember, Manhattan = tall, like the buildings in Manhattan. Cheers!

2oz Rye Whiskey
1oz Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth
4 dashes Angostura Bitters

DIRECTIONS: Stir ingredients in mixing glass with ice until well-chilled. Strain into a chilled Coupe or Martini Glass and drop a Luxardo or Amarena cherry in.
