I must confess to preferring my Manhattans served "Sweet", or "Perfect" at a push. The Manhattan is complex, challenging and moreish. Best of all, it's available in a style to suit every palate.
Consider using rye whiskey in place of bourbon or fifty-fifty of each. If you favour a generously proportioned Martini glass, then up this recipe to 75ml/2.5oz Bourbon
50ml/1oz Sweet vermouth
3 dashes Bitters.
