Manhattan Blogging

No, it’s a not a new blog devoted to one of Woody Allen’s better films. They’re discussing recipes of the classic drink on NRO’s Corner.

This is a pretty good page on the history of the drink, which I like to mix with Maker’s Mark.

This isn’t my personal favorite, but for a variant, there’s always my father’s drink of choice: ever since I’ve been around, Dad has always ordered his Manhattans made with Seagram’s V.O., and dry vermouth, poured up, with a twist of lemon. He’s given many a waiter or waitress the evil eye for bringing it with a cherry.
