In this free mixology video Clint will teach you how to make a Perfect Manhattan. This is an awesome whiskey based cocktail that is sure to knock your socks off! This is a strong drink for sure but what classifies this drink as "perfect" is the fact that it uses both sweet and dry vermouth. This makes the drink finish a little smoother than a traditional Manhattan. The sweet vermouth will mask a bit of the whiskey taste which doesn't make it any less powerful, just easier to put down!


Dry vermouth 1/2 Ounce
Sweet vermouth 1/2 Ounce
Whiskey 2 1/2 Ounce
Angostura bitters 1 Dash
Ice cubes 10 Medium

2. Stir the drink well with a bar spoon.

3. Strain into a martini glass.


4. Garnish with a lime wedge or maraschino cherry and serve chilled.
