History of the drink
The Olean, New York, Sunday Morning Herald published a story in September 1882, and is believed to the earliest recorded written mention of the Manhattan. A combination of whisky, vermouth and bitters only recently became popular following a statement from the same article regarding the name of this mixture. 'It went under numerous titles - Manhattan Cocktail, Turf Club Cocktail, and Jockey Club Cocktail'.
