The Perfect Manhattan cocktail gets its name from the equal amounts of sweet and dry vermouth in it. It’s also no surprise that a drink recipe named after Manhattan would have a variation that calls itself perfect.
Our Manhattan Cocktail recipe uses the classic 2 to 1 rye to vermouth ratio with the addition of a bing cherry to compliment the smokiness of the rye whiskey and is served on a big rock to keep everything ice cold.
Since its earliest days as the original cocktail, the Old Fashioned has undergone an evolution with thousands of variations. This classic Old Fashioned recipe uses bourbon, strips out the mid-century addition of soda while keeping the orange slice and cherry that are commonly associated with the cocktail.
