2 oz Whiskey
1/4 oz Sweet Vermouth
Dash of Bitters (optional)
Maraschino Cherry for Garnish
To prepare, pour both ingredients into a mixing glass filled with ice and stir.  Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish.
Please note that a DRY Manhattan can either mean the use of Dry Vermouth OR less Sweet Vermouth than usual.  A PERFECT Manhattan means equal amounts of Dry & Sweet Vermouth.
