Manhattan Cocktail Recipes

The Manhattan cocktail first appeared in the latter half of the 1800’s and is considered to be one of two classic & enduring whiskey cocktails [with the other being the Old Fashioned.] Comprised of three basic components; whiskey [traditionally rye], Italian sweet vermouth, and cocktail bitters [traditionally Angostura.] However with the availability and variety of all three ingredients on the market today there is a near limitless amount of combinations and variants of the classic recipe. Whether you like your Manhattan’s sweet or perfect, made with scotch & called a Rob Roy, or Japanese whiskey, as long as you’re drinking ’em, we’re happy. Explore the recipes below and experiment at home to find your favorite version of one of the oldest cocktails in whiskey history.
