Come Party With Me: Fashion Week Party — Drinks

For the bash I'm throwing in honor of New York Fashion Week, I'll be serving everyone rounds of this drink, the Manhattan. Not only is it a classic cocktail, but it's sleek, urban, and distinctly New York. The best thing about this bar classic? It's just as easy to make in a large batch as it is to prepare just one.

For those of my guests who aren't sipping spirits, I'll have sparkling cranberry juice on hand to pour, so they can look (and feel) just as glamorous as the rest. To stir up this fashionable drink,






12 ounces sweet vermouth
8 ounces rye whiskey
2 ounces Grand Marnier
16 dashes of Angostura bitters
8 orange or lemon twists


  1. Fill a pitcher two-thirds full with ice.
  2. Add the vermouth, rye, Grand Marnier, and bitters, and stir for 30 seconds to chill.
  3. Strain into 8 chilled martini glasses.
  4. Top each with a twist.

Serves 8.

in looking at the picture i thought you'd be serving a cosmo. i think that mahnattans are typically in a different type of glass no? i don't know - that's how i've always seen them done - but i'm not really a fan of anything that's martini like - i don't care for vermouth - or gin ..and things that come in martini glasses just remind me of those ingredients even if they aren't made from them.

I love Manhattans! I sometimes feel that I'm the only 24 year old that ever knows or drinks them. They definitely appeal to an acquired taste, yet you can play with the recipe to make it a little sweeter. This is def a drink where you have to know before you go--either you make them at home, or go to a reputable bar. When a bar tender doesn't know how to make one, the drink you order may turn out to be pretty bad, as I have learned from experience!

Sorry, my grandparents drank these (nasty) and I'm a lot older than most of you.
