Variations to The Manhattan Recipe

As with most cocktails, there are many variations to the Classic Manhattan recipe. When making your own Manhattan you may want to tweak the recipe a bit to better suit your personal taste. For instance, if you prefer a sweeter Manhattan you may wish to add a little juice from the cherry jar. If you like your Manhattan "on the rocks", you would serve it in a low-ball glass (old-fashioned glass) with ice. Bartenders will often tweak a Manhattan recipe a bit as well. They are often creative types, and switching things up a little will allow them to put a signature touch on the drinks they serve. Here is a list of some of the most popular Manhattan variations:

  • Brandy Manhattan- replace rye whiskey with brandy
  • Southern Comfort Manhattan- replace rye whiskey with Southern Comfort
  • Rob Roy- made with scotch instead of rye whiskey
  • Dry Manhattan- made with dry vermouth instead of sweet vermouth
  • Perfect Manhattan- made with a splash of sweet vermouth and a splash of dry vermouth
  • Latin Manhattan- made with white rum instead of rye and a splash of maraschino cherry juice.
  • Cuban Manhattan- made with dark rum instead of rye
