Manhattan cocktail


Classic, simple and straight to the point, the Manhattan is one of the easiest cocktails to make and one of the tastiest. Often made with bourbon, the most traditional recipes call for rye. We like to use a British-made rye whisky from Adnams for its flavour, but also to celebrate the rarity that is a rye whisky made on this side of the Atlantic. The spicy and citrus notes of Pick-Me-Up pair well with rye whisky and add an interesting alternative to Angostura in this version of the classic cocktail.


  • 50ml Adnams Rye Malt Whisky
  • 25ml Red Vermouth
  • 4 dashes Original Pick-Me-Up


Combine all ingredients and mix over ice, strain and serve straight up in a cocktail glass or small tumbler. Add optional cherry to garnish.
