This Manhattan on the Rocks recipe makes a substantial drink. It can be served straight up in a chilled cocktail glass or over ice in a rocks glass. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen


  • Ice cubes
  • 2 ounces whiskey, bourbon or rye
  • 1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 2 to 3 dashes bitters, optional
  • Maraschino cherry


  1. Fill a pint glass three-fourths full with ice. Add the whiskey, vermouth and bitters if desired; stir until well-chilled, 20-30 seconds. Strain into a coupe or cocktail glass or an ice-filled rocks glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
Editor's Note: You may substitute bourbon for the whiskey if desired. You may also strain the Manhattan into a chilled cocktail glass and serve without additional ice.
