We’re hitting up yet another classic cocktail, the Dry Manhattan. While seemingly timeless, much of the “facts” about this classic drink have become stories passed down since the late 1800’s. Popular history says the drink originated at the Manhattan Club in New York City back in the 1870’s but we’ve got nobody to provide 100% proof of this anymore.
Other history suggests the drink was born in the 1860’s but, in both cases, it pre-dates everyone drinking the cocktail today. Suffice to say, this is an ancient drink in the cocktail world that is built upon very simple ingredients and is considered one of the six “basic cocktails” listed in David A. Embury‘s classic The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks.
Know this, if you love whiskey then you’re probably going to enjoy this cocktail recipe.
