The Manhattan, served in a crystal martini glass, and the recipe below prepares it just as my father served it, and just as he explained to me how to make it, perfectly.  When he ordered it at a restaurant, he always cautioned the bartender, “just a drop of vermouth … just wave the vermouth over the drink.”

Ingredients and directions:

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.
