MFH says

A Manhattan can come in a variety of forms but Man For Himself prefers it sweet and garnished with a cherry. Whichever way you take it, the Manhattan will never go out of style.

Sweet Manhattan – How To

  1. Zest mixing glass with orange peel, then discard.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to ice filled mixing glass and stir.
  3. Strain into chilled martini glass.
  4. Garnish with cocktail cherry.



As the first drink to make use of vermouth as a blend, the Manhattan truly is the grandfather of American cocktails.
