The Manhattan, served in a crystal martini glass, and prepared as my father served it. But when he ordered it, he always cautioned the bartender, “just a drop of vermouth … just wave the vermouth over the drink.”
Fill a shaker with ice and add the following ingredients:
2 c. Canadian Club Whiskey or Korbel Brandy
Less than a capful of sweet Vermouth
Stir and pour into a chilled martini glass. Top with a twist of lemon or drop in a maraschino cherry. Makes 4 cocktails.
