The classic, elegant Manhattan is one of the first cocktails I ever learned to drink. It seemed like such a grown up, classy thing to sip on while sitting in some dark, oak paneled New York bar. So the young me thought it was fun while the...um...older me now appreciates the taste.
It's such a simple drink with just a few perfect ingredients. But the combination actually tastes quite complex and has an intoxicating aroma. Just between us, I always add extra cherries to my Manhattan because I love them after they've soaked up the drink's flavor. And, if I know you really well, it's entirely possible that I would steal the cherry out of your drink too. Cheers!
