How do you make a Manhattan?:w:
1 1/2 oz. blended whiskey or bourbon--I used to think that Manhattans should be made with Canadian whiskey, but a lot of people I respect insist on bourbon. Maybe its a southern thing...anyway, both ways work so take your pick.
3/4 oz. sweet vermouth--This is where a lot of faux-bartenders screw up. Unlike a martini, which calls for restraint with the (dry) vermouth, the Manhattan should have a decent amount of sweet vermouth.
Dash of bitters--Another problem area, most of the Manhattan devotees I know would rather drink water out of a urinal than a Manhattan without bitters. Angostura bitters are the most common, and are very good. Most bars have them, and I even know a few people who won't go into a strange bar without their own bottle just in case. You might want to try orange bitters, for a little bit of variety.
Throw it all in a mixing glass with a lot of ice, stir it up, strain it off and serve. Garnish it with a maraschino cherry. Now *that's* a man's drink, and a civilized man's drink to boot. For some reason, I haven't met many female Manhattan drinkers. If you do come across one, it might not be a bad idea to marry her.
