Sweet vermouth is shaken with ice, bourbon whisky and bitters, then served with a cocktail cherry. To get the best flavour, use the best quality bourbon and vermouth you can find.
WOW! My husband and I loved this...perfect ratio. We didn't change a thing, just chilled the glasses really well. Don't skip the bitters or the cherries, it adds to the great flavour. - 31 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
That Shaggy sure knows his drinks! This cocktail is a little sweet from the vermouth, but it packs a punch with all that liquor! The cherry makes a nice presentation, but I usually leave it out. - 03 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Shaggy makes good drinks. This is a very good Manhattan. - 10 Apr 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
