a classic Manhattan cocktail
parts rye whiskey or bourbon
part Italian ‘Sweet’ Vermouth
dashes Angostura type bitters
ice- crushed will make it colder but regular old cubes work just fine
a pint glass for assembling
a nice long bar spoon for stirring
a strainer for straining
orange or lemon zest and/or maraschino cherry for garnish
pour whiskey, vermouth, and bitters over ice.
Stir to combine and chill.
Pour into a martini or small rocks glass.
If garnishing with a twist actually twist it over the drink releasing the oils. I like to run the twist along the edge of the glass as well.
