Comprised of whiskey, sweet vermouth, and bitters, and garnished with a brandied cherry, the traditional Manhattan got its name from the New York City club who made it for the first time. There’s not a lot of fluff in this tequila Manhattan recipe unless you count the maraschino cherry. It’s a drink that lets the main ingredient, the whiskey, shine. In this spicy version, the Añejo Manhattan, the bourbon is traded for Añejo tequila. The richness of the tequila takes center stage of this tequila modified drink.
