The Perfect Manhattan is a close relative of the Manhattan. Made using our Bowman Brothers Virginia Straight Bourbon Whiskey, the “Perfect” part of this easy bourbon cocktail refers not to the technique needed to make it, but the use of two different styles of vermouth in “perfect” proportions. The 50/50 blend of sweet and dry vermouth elevates this drink to a whole new level, without compromising the integrity of the traditional whiskey-vermouth-bitters combination. If you think a traditional Manhattan is a little too sweet, this is the perfect recipe for you.
