Classic Manhattan Cocktail Glasses

Originally created in the late 1800s, the Manhattan is one of the oldest cocktails known to mankind. 

This cocktail has remained a popular choice even during the Prohibition era. 

Although the Manhattan is considered a vintage drink, it still packs a punch and has a robust flavor. 

In this cocktail, the boozy flavors from the whiskey combine with the sweetness of the vermouth to create a rich depth of flavor.

Manhattans are versatile, and you can change the flavor by using different whiskeys, vermouths, or bitters. 

IIf you’re feeling fancy, you can serve the Manhattan on the rocks in a lowball glass or a coupe glass, but the classic Manhattan is typically served in a martini glass with a maraschino cherry. Manhattans are classic cocktails that are easy to make and are sure to please your customers, regardless of the glass in which they are served.

Manhattan’s history

Nobody truly knows where or when the Manhattan cocktail originated, and the true origins of the cocktail remain a mystery. 

Originally created in New York City’s Manhattan Club in 1874, the Manhattan drink is one of the most popular stories surrounding its creation. According to legend, the cocktail was created at a party thrown by Jennie Jerome, a socialite who went on to be the mother of Winston Churchill. 

It was held at the Manhattan Club, thus the cocktail’s name, and it was thrown in honor of Samuel J. Tilden.

This theory is popular, however it has been thoroughly debunked because Jennie Jerome was pregnant with her first child when she was thought to be hosting the party. 

In recent years, historians believe the drink originated in the 1860s, though the exact date and location remain a mystery. 

The exact origin of the Manhattan cocktail is a mystery, but the recipe has survived and remains one of the most popular cocktails today.

What is the best way to make a Manhattan cocktail

The ingredients

  • An ice cube for stirring
  • Two ounces of either rye or bourbon (I like Bulleit Rye)
  • A shot of sweet vermouth (my favorites are Dolin or Carpano Antica).
  • A dash of Angostura bitters
  • 1 cocktail cherry, such as a Luxardo cherry

Directions

  1. Add a few inches of ice to a mixing glass. Pour the whiskey, vermouth, and bitters into the glass. Circularly stir the drink for about 30 seconds, or until it is very cold (if you’d like a drink with less bite, stir longer).
  2. In a coupe or martini glass, strain the liquid. Add a cocktail cherry as a garnish. Sip. 

You can make a Manhattan in just minutes. Follow these steps:

  1. Combine your ingredients in a mixing glass, then fill a coupe or martini glass with ice.
  2. Fill your mixing glass with whiskey and vermouth. Add a few dashes of bitters.
  3. Continually stir.
  4. In a drinking glass, strain the mixture.
  5. Have fun.

The Manhattan seems fancy, but it is actually one of the easiest cocktails to make. The only ingredients you’ll need are cherries and sugar. It’s all about choosing ingredients that complement each other well.

Within no time you will be sipping a delicious Manhattan cocktail. For Manhattans, you never have to use a cocktail shaker because they should always be stirred, not shaken. Enjoy!
