This famous cocktail is a bourbon based cocktail but you can easily replace the bourbon with any whiskey. If you like to have a sweeter taste one may use Canadian Whiskey or use the Tennessee stuff for a little sour taste, or use rye for a tad more complexity. This classic cocktail is served in a short and round glass, which sometimes is called the Old Fashioned glass which is named after the drink itself.

Start by putting a sugar cube into the glass and add 2 to 3 dashes of Angustora bitters.

Add a splash of soda water and smash the mixture until the sugar dissolves, and then fill the glass with ice cubes. You can use the back of the spoon for light smashing or a muddler for smashing to be intense. Add whiskey in amounts as desired to the top of the glass and stir. To garnish, add a slice of orange slice and maraschino cherry.

  • The Manhattan

For preparation, add 3 parts of Canadian or Rye whiskey with a part of sweet and red vermouth. Add a dash of Angustora or Peychaud’s bitters. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and stir until very cold. Pour into cocktail glasses and enjoy The Manhattan!

To prepare this ecstatic cocktail, add one and half oz gin,half oz simple syrup, juice from half a lemon and soda water and shake the mixture over ice.
