    You inspired me to find out more about this classic cocktail. Apparently it is said to have been invented at the request of Winston Churchill's mother at New York's Manhatttan Club back in 1874.

    If you weren't inspired by the simple description above, read this one which I found. You won't be able to resist trying one!

    "The silky smooth texture of a chilled Manhattan flows over the tongue filling the mouth with flavors that is greater than the sum of its ingredients. The blend of the charred oak, spiciness, of Bourbon; the sweet, herbal, and slight caramel flavor of Sweet Vermouth; and the indescribable flavor of bitters combine to make a cocktail like none other."
