MANHATTAN DETAIL PAGE
Shake or stir the whiskey, vermouth, and bitters with ice. Strain into a glass and garnish with the cherry. There are many variations of this drink, and the ratio of whiskey to vermouth, the type of whiskey, and the type of bitters are all commonly switched. Some prefer 1 part whiskey to 1 part vermouth (a sweeter drink). Or bourbon instead of rye. Or Angostura bitters instead of Orange bitters.
