TGIF! Manhattans

TGIF! Manhattans(via)

Manhattan is a city full of powerful, single ladies. But alas, the days of Sex And The City are over! Cosmopolitans are tacky, and I personally would not be caught dead holding one.

For this Friday – I want to introduce you to the Manhattan. Every single girl should know that there are 3 types of Manhattans – Dry, Perfect, Sweet.

It should be stirred, not shaken, and made with RYE whiskey and a dash of Angostura bitters.

A Dry Manhattan is made with dry vermouth and served with a twist.

A Perfect Manhattan is made with equal parts sweet and dry vermouth, with a lemon twist (and sometimes a cherry as well).

A Sweet Manhattan is made with sweet vermouth, with a Maraschino cherry submerged.

Are you dry, perfect or sweet?
