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.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
