The classiest of drinks, nothing is prettier or tastier than a classic Manhattan straight up. This article provides you with two recipes because it can be made with bourbon whiskey or rye whiskey, depending on what you have available, what you prefer, or perhaps you'd like to try both!


Rye whiskey version: This recipe serves one – double it to include your friend!

  • 1 lemon
  • Some maraschino cherries
  • Some ice
Bourbon whiskey version: This recipe is for two, since no one should drink alone!

  • Sweet dark vermouth
  • Grenadine or maraschino cherry juice
  • Maraschino cherries
  • Angostura bitters
  • Some ice

    Rye whiskey version:

    2.Pour the rye whiskey in to the mixing glass. Add the sweet vermouth

Margarita is in Spanish, "daisy", but probably drink takes its name from the name of a woman for whom created this iconic drink - Margarita drink.

  a bit of lime juicecoarse / table salt
shaker on ice
chilled cocktail glass

1.Put ice in a shaker.
2. Measure one part tequila and pour into the shaker.
