Making a classic Manhattan cocktail -- 5 minutes

POUR the whiskey, vermouth and two dashes of bitters in a container, bowl or mixing. STIR well together and pour the mixture into a nice cocktail glass.

The best way of mixing the liquids together would be to mix them in a chilled container. Pierce a cherry on a cocktail stick and place it on top of the cocktail glass. It's possible to prepare this cocktail in advance, as long as you keep it refrigerated.

Stir before serving. Enjoy this delicious cocktail!
