The Manhattan

The Manhattan

This Classic Concoction is Just What the Doctor Ordered. Legend has it swanky folks concocted the recipe at the Manhattan Club, but you don’t have to be a high roller to enjoy one of the oldest cocktails in history.


  • 2 oz. Old Wm. Tarr Manchester Reserve
  • .5 oz. dry vermouth
  • .5 oz. sweet red vermouth
  • 2-3 dashes bitters


Stir in a mixing glass with ice, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a citrus peel or cherry.

Fun Fact

Doctor Iain Marshall allegedly invented the drink at the Manhattan Club in NYC somewhere around 1870, which – coincidentally – was around the same time William Tarr bought the Ashland Distillery.
