Every home bartender should know how to make one of these.
Add all the ingredients to a mixing glass and fill with ice.
Stir until exceedingly well-chilled.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
Watch Liquor.com advisory board member Dushan Zaric make an Employees Only Manhattan in our How to Cocktail video.Or watch top bartender Allison Widdecombe make a classic Manhattan, along with her own, award-winning variation in How to Cocktail: Manhattan, Two Ways.

Rather than bourbon, which has a tendency you to be heavy, and inconsistent, use Seagrams V.O. You'll love it. V.O., Sweet Vermouth (but just a dash), bitters (optional - I like mine without), and a lemon twist - peel rubbed around the rim before adding to the glass/liquid.
Hmmm I always used cherries in Rob Roy's and Manhattan's. Oh well! I do like cherries.
I have been trying to find Carpano Antica Formula for three years. Nobody has it. Where are you guys getting it. I have also been drinking Manhattan"s for over forty years and the garnish is a cherry. A twist is for Rob Roy's.
I like a perfect manhattan which calls for sweet and dry vermouth and if I get a twist with this I know the bartender knows what they are doing. I always as for a blended whiskey - I used to be able to get rye but that is rare now but never bourbon!!
A cherry, please.
