A great Manhattan cocktail needs just 3 things: to be thoroughly chilled, well balanced and enjoyed amongst friends.
- 1 Maraschino cherry
- 2 parts whiskey
- 1 part sweet vermouth
- 1-2 dashes angostura bitters
Place a cherry in the bottom of a martini glass. Combine the whiskey, vermouth and bitters in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Stir until well chilled and strain into the martini glass.
