Classic Rye Manhattan Recipe


  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 1 Luxardo cherry
  • 1 slice fresh orange peel
  • 2 oz. Rye good quality such as Rittenhouse
  • 3 dashes angostura bitters


  • Using a shaker, combine vermouth, rye, and bitters. Add ice and stir for 30-45 seconds. Strain and serve into your glass of choice. Add luxardo cherry. Garnish with fresh orange peel, expressing the oils over the glass before adding to your drink. For an extra special cocktail, try lightly flaming your orange peel with a kitchen torch to extract more orange flavor before expressing. Enjoy!
