Like the old fashioned, a Manhattan is another simple whiskey or bourbon-based drink with bitters. What makes it unique, though, is it's use of sweet or red vermouth and cherry garnish instead of the old fashioned's orange garnish.
This one is very easy to make. Simply add your bourbon, vermouth, and bitters to a mixing glass with ice to about the top of the liquid. Then, stir the ingredients for about 20-30 seconds and strain into a cocktail or rocks glass. Finally, garnish with a Luxardo cherry and voila!
