Of all of the Classics, this is the Classic’s Classic. As the name suggests, the Manhattan is indicative of something grandiose, archetypal. As much as we’re proponents of talented bartenders making their mark with signature cocktails, there will never be another Manhattan. Behold the timeless simplicity of bourbon, sweet vermouth and bitters! And for the record, if you ever see a bartender shaking a Manhattan, you may want to opt for something on draft instead.
