This Manhattan is considered ‘perfect’ not only due to its fabulous flavor, but also from the 1:1 ratio of dry and sweet vermouth used in the blend.


  • 2 ounces straight rye
  • 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
  • 1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
  • Dash of angostura bitters
  • maraschino cherry to garnish


  1. Place a martini glass in the freezer for 5 minutes to chill.
  2. Pour the rye and both kinds of vermouth into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously for 25 seconds.
  3. Strain the mixture into the prepared glass, garnish with a maraschino cherry and serve immediately.
