Spring Hill Ranch's Manhattan Cocktail

Wiley P


It is said that the Manhattan cocktail was invented by Dr. Ian Marshall at a banquet for Lady Randolph Churchill held at The Manhattan club in New York city. During the 1940's and 1950's, one often served only martinis and Manhattans at one's cocktail parties. All I know is that the Manhattan cocktail is Sis' favorite, so we keep a gallon jug of these in the 'fridge!
