Comment:

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.

If you favour a generously proportioned Martini glass, then up this recipe to 75ml/2.5oz bourbon, 30ml/1oz sweet vermouth, 3 dashes bitters, and maraschino syrup to taste (max 5ml).

Variant:

Manhattan Dry and Manhattan Perfect. Also served over ice in an old-fashioned glass.
