How To Make A Manhattan Cocktail

Are you looking for an ancient school cocktail? Is 1870 ancient enough for you? The Manhattan cocktail is tasty and it is also an vital part of cocktail history. Here is it’s fascinating origin and some of the best recipes for making a Manhattan cocktail.

In the 1870′s, Winston Churchill’s mother was hosting a party for then presidential candidate Samuel J. Tilden. This cocktail was made especially for the banquet and it was a huge hit. Mr. Tilden lost the election wound up losing the election but his party drink became well-known. People started asking for the drink by the name of the club where the party was held, The Manhattan Cocktail. Personally, I would have called it the Mother Churchill’s Cocktail but I wasn’t born for another 100 years, so I didn’t have a say in the matter.

Manhattan Recipe
2.5 ounces Canadian Whiskey (Kentucky Bourbon or Rye can also be used)
1 ounce Sweet Vermouth
Dash Angostura Bitters
1 Maraschino Cherry

Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice
Strain into a martini glass or an ancient fashioned glass on the rocks
Add Cherry

Variations:
Dry Manhattan – Make it with dry vermouth instead of sweet vermouth and serve it with a twist.
Perfect Manhattan – Make it with equal parts dry and sweet vermouth.

What other drink can boast a lineage to Winston Churchill’s family and taste fantastic at the same time? There’s a well loved saying, what’s ancient is new again and it’s right of the Manhattan. Why not make a Manhattan cocktail today?
