VIDEO: How to Make a Classic Manhattan Cocktail (recipe)
From The Joy of Drinking on Jun 07, 2013
The classic Manhattan was the very first drink we ever learned how to make! For Josh, it was in the college dorm room of his good friend John, sometimes using Burger King ice. For me, it was in my good friend Kathy's friend's New York apartment, who happened to be a superstar bartender; he taught me how to stir, crack ice, and even measure. For both of Josh and me, it's a very dear cocktail that we've returned to again and again.
We're excited to kick off this new videos series about how to make classic cocktails! But, believe us, we know that there are many, many ways to make any given cocktail.
So this is our way. But we want to know yours! What do you guys think? Happy Friday!
Here's the full recipe:
2 oz whiskey (we like rye)
1 oz Vermouth (can you guess which one is used here?)
3 dashes angostura (or to taste)
