I'll Take Manhattan is a beautiful riff on the classic Manhattan Cocktail, where the cherry flavour is much more than a garnish, and it is one of those versions that highlight the beauty of the Cherry Heering Liqueur Cocktails.
The evolution of the Manhattan starting back in 1891 with a recipe long forgotten and many variations is hard to pick. In the beginning, there was Ray Whiskey as it was popular in New York. Slowly the Bourbon takes over in this classic Cocktail Recipe.
However, when you try Dry Manhattan, Perfect Manhattan and Sweet Manhattan, you may decide to explore all of them. So let me help you start with this cocktail recipe first.
