So for all of my friends out there who aren't whiskey/bourbon drinkers, here is how to make the perfect Manhattan cocktail.
The perfect Manhattan
2 ounces rye whiskey
1 ounce Italian vermouth
2 dashes angostura bitters
1 large ice cube (we got cylinder ice cube makers that are fun to use and the ice melts slower so it doesn't dilute your cocktails)
Stir stir stir so the ice chills the drink and serve!
