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 and 3 dashes bitters.

Variant:

Dry Manhattan, Perfect Manhattan. or a Sweet Manhattan served on-the-rocks in an old-fashioned glass.

Origin:
