Friday Cocktails: American Whiskey

Manhattan Recipe

Manhattan

Few cocktails are more classic than the Manhattan, a mix of rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, and angostura bitters.Todd Coleman

It was easy for us to fall in love with the recipes featured in SAVEUR Issue #141 as part of Rebecca Barry's story "Whiskey Rebellion." The story itself will be online later this month, but for now we're taking comfort in the dazzling array of whiskey-based cocktails that showcase the extraordinary flavors of Bourbon, white whiskey, rye, and other American spirits. Whether it's a traditional drink like a Sazerac or Seelbach, or a brand-new classic like mixologist Jill Schuster's cherry cola La La Lola or Julian Cox's beet-spiked tipple, we're ready to open our hearts — and our liquor cabinets — to American whiskey.
