September 10, 2015 – The Republic Steakhouse
1 1/2 oz. Canadian whisky
1/4 oz. dry vermouth
1/4 oz. vermouth rosso
Dashes of Angostura bitters
Stir well with ice in a mixing glass. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with the cherry.
Pendleton Canadian whisky, Carpano Antica vermouth rosso, Dolin dry vermouth. As with the Manhattan Dry, I still have trouble calling this a Manhattan without some other designation… Canadian Manhattan, Moose Manhattan, Volstead Manhattan… something other than just Manhattan. It certainly follows the liquor/vermouth/bitters formula, so I’ll go with it. This version is lighter than one made with rye or Bourbon, with good bitterness from the vermouths and just a slight fruity sweetness.
