One of the most classic cocktail. Created in 1874 at Manhattan Club in New York.
At that time, most cocktails would include bitters in them, to offset the sweetness of the other ingredients. Many will skip that step nowadays, making the Manhattan simply a Canadian whiskey / Italian vermouth mixed drink.
The Gaelic cousin of the popular Manhattan.
A popular rival to the Martini and the Manhattan.
This version of the classic Manhattan incorporates a few additional ingredients that add some sweetness to the classic Manhattan. I think that these additions make this drink more palatable than the traditional Manhattan and accentuate the positive qualities of the Whiskey.
A Manhattan with Apple Brandy
Your run of the mill Manhattan, with the exception that it uses both types of Vermouth, removing the need for bitters by balancing the mixture.
A strong cocktail with the flavor of a past era
