Review:

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 (1 2/3rd) rosso vermouth, and 3 dashes bitters.

Variant:

Dry Manhattan; Perfect Manhattan; Sweet Manhattan served on-the-rocks in an old-fashioned glass, High Rye Manhattan
