AKA:

Scotch Manhattan

Comment:

A Sweet Manhattan made with Scotch in place of bourbon. The dry, peaty whisky and bitters ensure it's not too sweet.

Variant:

'Highland', made with orange bitters instead of Angostura.

About:

Created in 1894 at New York's Waldorf - Astoria Hotel (the Empire State Building occupies the site today) and named, not after the Scottish folk hero and outlaw Robert Roy MacGregor, but after the Broadway show that was showing at the time.
