When we’re looking for a classic night with a delicious cocktail, there’s one drink that comes to mind: the Manhattan. It’s been a go to drink for us since we can remember and it’s always a nice return to what cocktails should taste like. Though some bartenders might disagree, the Manhattan is a classic in our eyes.


To whip up the delicious drink yourself, here’s what you’ll need:


  • 2 ½ oz. bourbon
  • ¾ oz sweet vermouth
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
  • Maraschino cherry
  • Orange peel


Combine the vermouth, bourbon and bitters with ice cubes in a glass. Stir and add a cherry to the glass. Garnish the cocktail with an orange peel and sip. You’ll love it.
