About this recipe: This is a simple and ultra-delicious cocktail. Spiced rum and sweet vermouth is poured over ice and garnished with a cocktail cherry. Enjoy anytime of the week.
Not bad. But here is another twist on this recipe. It's called a Seattle Manhattan. Use Jim Beam in place of the rum and add Starbucks Coffee Liqeuer. It adds a nice coffee flavor, but becareful too much and it will be way to strong! - 26 Sep 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a great manhattan, but as a purist, it's not a manhattan without the Rye. A great Rum Drink nonetheless. - 06 Feb 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Maybe you'd have better luck if you didn't put Manhattan in the name. To me that only means one thing----a very good bourbon whiskey (I know rye is the one that is supposed to be used). This was pretty good. It is a good rum drink. - 02 Nov 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
