This recipe is for a single classic, premium Manhattan. It makes a rather large, potent double that has sipping-good flavor.
This recipe came out of many trials and errors with various premium bourbons, and proportions. Knob Creek is perfect for a Manhattan. Its slightly sweet flavors stand out in this drink. Any premium sweet vermouth may be substituted. It isn't a Manhattan without bitters.


Chill martini-type cocktail glasses. (Three ice cubes and a shot or two of water will get the job done quickly.)

Put several ice cubes (not crushed) in a pitcher, or a large glass tumber. Add bourbon, vermouth, and bitters per the recipe.

Gently swirl or stir for at least 20 seconds. Do not hurry this, and absolutely do *not* shake it.

Strain into chilled cocktail glass. Add stemmed maraschino cherry.
