Classic Manhattan Cocktail

Updated: Jan 29, 2021

A Manhattan cocktail is truly one of my most favorite cocktails! I always order one of these when we go out because I never make them at home. Ever. Until tonight. It is Friday night and I decided to change that and make a Manhattan for my "Friday Night Cocktail" at home, for the first time. What a treat! This is a perfect cocktail to sip on a cold winter night by the fire! Cheers to a wonderful weekend!

Classic Manhattan Cocktail


1/2 oz. Sweet Vermouth

3 1/2 oz. Rye Whiskey (or any other Whiskey)

2 to 4 dashes Angostura Bitters


Cherry or two

  1. Fill a mixing glass with ice.

  2. Add the vermouth, whiskey and bitters to the glass and stir.

  3. Strain into a chilled glass or pour contents over ice.

  4. Garnish with a cherry. If you prefer it to be sweeter, you can also add a bit of cherry juice.

Honestly, it is such a treat to have my favorite cocktail in the comfort of my own home! A Manhattan is such a cozy cocktail to drink during these cold winter nights. The best part is the cherry! I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!
