Author Notes: This cocktail can be anything to anyone—especially if you use equal parts sweet and dry vermouth, as this “perfect Manhattan” does, which unbuttons the dark, boozy collar of a regular Manhattan just the right amount. Is it perfect? I don’t know if you’ll think it is, but I might make one soon to find out.Food52


Serves 1

  • 1 1/3 ounces Bulleit rye
  • 1/3 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 1/3 ounce dry vermouth
  • 2 dashes bitters
  • Maraschino cherries, for garnish
  1. Combine everything save for the cherries in a mixing glass. Add ice and stir a good 10 to 15 seconds, depending on the size of your ice cubes.
  2. Strain into coupes or lowballs, and garnish with a cherry if you like.
