Manhattan

A Manhattan is such a classic cocktail.  I almost feel fancy when I drink one… kinda like Lauren Bacall or Katherine Hepburn

Legend has it that this cocktail was invented in the late 1800’s in, yup, you guessed it, Manhattan, NY

Regardless of where it originated, it’s a simple cocktail that apparently can stand the test of time

There are versions using Bourbon or various types of whiskey, but like most recipes, I like to use what I have on hand

Assemble your favorite whiskey, sweet vermouth, Angostura bitters and some Maraschino cherries

Note: I was able to find the Angostura bitters at my grocery store in the drink mixer section
