Popular history suggests this recipe was originally created at the Manhattan Club in NYC in the 1870’s. The Manhattan is almost a sort of Old Fashioned that uses Rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, and bitters. Although Rye is the traditional choice for this recipe, you could also go for a bourbon or blended whiskey of your choice.

2 oz. Rye Whiskey
1/2 oz. Sweet Vermouth
3 Dashes Angostura Bitters

Add ingredients to mixing glass and stir lightly with ice. Strain into Nick & Nora glass (my preferred glassware over a martini glass), serve up.
