We have covered the history of the Manhattan before, as both the Sweet and Perfect variants. The Dry Manhattan just completes the canonical set. It is probably the least pleasing of the three, but will do in a pinch.
- 60ml bourbon
- 25ml dry vermouth
- 2 dashes Angostura bitters
Stir the liquid ingredients with ice and strain onto a chilled Martini glass.
Twist the orange peel over and either discard (canonical) or add to the glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry dropped into the bottom of the glass.
