A fine scotch has always been a byword for opulence and sumptuous lifestyle. Scotch, albeit the fact that it is a hard drink to mix, preserves its signature smoky, bittersweet taste in the mix. Here are a few scotch cocktails that reminisce the original characteristic scotch flavours quite tastefully.

The Manhattan cocktail has many stories surrounding its origin. A popular one suggested the drink to be created by Dr. Iain Marshall at the banquet held in the early 1870s at the Manhattan Club in New York City in honour of presidential candidate Samuel J. Tilden by Jennie Jerome, popularly known as Lady Randolph, mother of Winston Churchill. The people in attendance took quite a liking to this drink and requested for it later on, calling it “the Manhattan Cocktail”. It was, however, considered unlikely as Lady Randolph had taken abode in France at the time.

Manhattan Cocktail Ingredients

    • 60 ml Antiquity Blue Whiskey
    • 15 ml sweetened Vermouth
    • 2 - 3 dashes of Angostura Bitters
    • 2 to 3 Cherries

Steps to make a Manhattan Cocktail

    Take a mixing glass filled with a few ice cubes. Add whiskey, vermouth, and angostura bitter into the glass and stir the contents for about three minutes. Strain the contents into a chilled cocktail or martini glass and garnish your Manhattan drink with a few Maraschino cherries and some orange peel.


    To make your Manhattan drink more savoury, you can try an alternative Manhattan recipe by adding a few drops of angostura bitter into the cocktail glass and swirling it around to let it cover the inside of the glass. Separately mix the whiskey, vermouth, and some maraschino cherry syrup in a tumbler filled with ice. Stir the contents and strain it into the glass coated with the angostura bitter. Garnish the drink with maraschino cherries and some orange peel for an added flavour. With a few simple steps, you can have your cocktail ready in no time.
