I originally made this cocktail with a combination of whiskies I had available according to the standard NY Bartender's Guide recipe. There are many more including sweet, dry, and "perfect" variations. Use Canadian whiskey or bourbon to change it up. Then there are also blended and Irish whiskey versions too. Outside of whiskey, there's tequila, brandy, and even dark rum versions. But this is the original as was first made at the Manhattan Club in New York.

  • 3 oz. rye whiskey
  • 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
  • dash Angostura bitters
  • maraschino cherry
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.
