A classic rumored to have originated at the Manhattan Club in New York in the late 1800s. It is an easy cocktail, but difficult to prepare correctly.


  • 5 cl Rye whiskey (can also be a Bourbon with a high rye content)
  • 2 cl Sweet red Vermouth
  • Angostura Bitter
  • Orange or Cherry


  1. It is important to cool your glass before you start cocktail making. If possible, put your glass in the freezer 5-10 minutes before you start making your cocktail.
  2. Put the Whiskey, Vermouth and Bitter ingredients together with plenty of ice in the specified amounts in the Mixing glass (Mixing jug) and mix with a Stirrer (or any mixing stick) for about 30 seconds.
  3. With the help of a strainer, separate the ice and pour your drink from the pitcher into the ice-cold glass you have cooled.
  4. Garnish with an orange slice or cherry as you wish.
