I forgot to mention the cherry juice.  Another poster mentioned it, and I always add a little when I use cherries.  Sometimes just the juice, and no cherry

That would cause some serious trouble on the home front! The BH doesn't like Manhattans, but she loves the cherry soaked in one. This is not a problem when we're at home, but it is somewhat embarassing when we're dining out. The bartender asks me what I want & I reply "Bourbon Manhattan, on the rocks". A gentle (sometimes not so gentle) elbow in the ribs prompts me to add "Oh yeah, with two cherries!".

Regarding the Manhattan with Cherry and/or Cherry Juice ------
The man who taught me to drink these wonderful concoctions
(my father-in-law) would always add a bit of the juice with the cherry
and he got me addicted.  Then my old buddy Roy either learned it
from me, or knew it all along----the juice just adds a tiny touch of sweetness
 
AND----sweetness is essential in life.  That's why Mary and I get along---we are both very sweet.  Cav---I assume you are the same.

Okay... ordered a Manhattan twice now in two different palces.  Not going to order it a 3rd time.  I just don't fit the profile.

  I like a Manhattan once in a while, but I really prefer bourbon and water. The sweetness of the cherry gives me heartburn. The bitters may also have something to do with it.

p.s. I am pretty sure that I included a cherry in my original post but forgot to include the bitters.

The classic manhattan, in the middle of the last century, was one of the most popular cocktails in the USA.  Absent any qualifiers, it was made with rye whiskey, sweet Italian vermouth, bitters and a cherry.  They were served in "martini" glasses, after having been shaken or stirred with ice (the ice did not go in the glass).  Proportions varied from 2:1 whiskey to vermouth, all the way to 5:1.  As with the martini, stirring it produces a more translucent result.

I's just a little "E" instead of an "A", but it's been driving me crazy . Please, POWERS THAT BE, correct that little misspelling in the title of this thread.

Cheers, John
