Repeal of Prohibition NYT

May I suggest a Perfect Manhattan?

1 1/2 oz whisky (Canadian Club was the preferred)
1/4 oz. dry Vermouth
1/4 oz Vermouth rosso
dashes of Angostura bitters
stemmed cherry
opt: twist of orange

Despite what Nick Charles would have you believe, don’t shake this to a foxtrot, instead stir in a mixing glass filled with ice cubes. Serve neat in a chille cocktail glass garnished with the cherry. Some say this was invented at the Manhattan Club in 1874 for Lady Randolph Churchill who was having a party for politician Samuel J. Tilden.
