My recipe for the manhattan is as follows:

The Manhattan

2 oz Canadian Rye Whisky (substitute Bourbon, or Tennessee Whisky)
3/4 oz Sweet Red Vermouth
Dash of Angostura Bitters (optional)
3 Large Ice cubes
Maraschino Cherry
Twist of Orange Peel

Add the whiskey, the Vermouth, and the optional bitters with 3 large ice cubes in a Martini Shaker.
Shake gently to chill the mixture.
Spear a cherry with a long toothpick and place it in a chilled glass.
Strain the mixed ingredients over the cherry but do not add the ice.
Rub the cut edge of the orange peel over the rim of the glass and twist it over the drink. (This will release the oil from the orange zest into the drink) Discard the peel.

Garnish with orange, lemon, or lime slice if preferred.

In my opinion this is a go to cocktail when I am enjoying a new whisky. Just enough elegance and class to showcase the whisky.
