Quick Reference

A manhattan is a cocktail made from sweet vermouth, whisky, and usually a dash of angostura bitters. It was first created, in the USA, around 1890, and crossed the Atlantic quickly enough to make an appearance in the 1906 edition of Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management. It was named after Manhattan, the borough of New York City.
