Classic Manhattan Cocktail

March 3, 2023

It's a cold and rainy night here. After a long week, I decided to stay in tonight, make pizza for dinner and enjoy a cocktail at home.

It's time for my "Friday Night Cocktail"...a Manhattan! It's a perfect night for my favorite winter cocktail! I absolutely love this drink! It is a perfect cocktail to sip by the fire on a cold winter night! Cheers to a wonderful weekend! Happy Friday all!

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.

What could be better than sitting by the fire on a cold winter night with Manhattan in hand. I am in heaven and am so excited for the weekend! I hope that you have a great one!
