Dry Manhattan

Dry Manhattan cocktail with rye whiskey, dry vermouth, and aromatic bitters

A Dry Manhattan is exactly what it says on the tin: a Manhattan, made with dry vermouth instead of sweet vermouth. It’s a lighter, more refreshing take on the original, with a greater focus on the spicy notes of a good rye – bourbon is acceptable, but rye is really best here.

A cherry is the traditional Manhattan garnish, but we think a lemon or orange twist is better in a Dry Manhattan.
