The Manhattan is a classic cocktail that is made with whiskey, sweet vermouth, and bitters. The origins of this cocktail can be traced back to the late 19th century, specifically to the Manhattan Club in New York City. The drink was created at the club for a banquet hosted by Lady Randolph Churchill, the mother of future British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. The drink was created by a bartender named Martini di Arma di Taggia, and it quickly became popular among the guests at the banquet. The Manhattan is typically made by stirring whiskey, sweet vermouth, and bitters together with ice, and then straining it into a chilled cocktail glass. The traditional garnish is a cherry, although some variations can use a twist of lemon peel. The Manhattan is considered one of the most classic and popular cocktails of all time, and it's considered a timeless classic that's perfect for any occasion, particularly as a winter drink. The Manhattan is a versatile drink that can be made with different types of whiskey and variations on the recipe have been created over the years.
