I was given many years ago the recipe for 'the perfect Manhattan' as follows: 2 oz. 100 proof bourbon (like Jeremiah Weed), 1 oz. extra dry Vermouth, 5 drops bitters, 1-2 Maraschino cherries plus 1 teaspoon cherry juice. Serve over ice or not. You won't order it 'out' as others will not be as good.

This is a true classic- bracing for sure but yummy all the same.
