A Manhattan cocktail is made with whiskey, sweet vermouth and bitters. Typically, rye is the traditional whiskey of choice in a Manhattan but some mixologists prefer using Canadian whisky, bourbon, blended whiskey or Tennessee whiskey. Generally, the cocktail is stirred then strained into a cocktail glass and garnished with a twist of orange zest or Maraschino cherry.
It is thought that the Manhattan cocktail originated at the Manhattan Club in New York City in the early 1870s. However as there are prior references to various similar cocktail recipes called "Manhattan" in the 1860s, the exact history is uncertain.

One of the key ingredients is Benedictine and whilst not overly predominate, it gives the drink its unique flavour.
