Preparation of the Manhattan cocktail

Once the ingredients that we are going to use are known, it is time to know the steps that we must follow to prepare them.

  1. The first thing we must do is take a mixing glass and add the ice to it. With the help of a mixing spoon, we will move them to get the glass to cool.
  2. Next, we will have to eliminate the water that the ice cubes have been releasing so that the cocktail is not too watery.
  3. Once the previous steps have been done, what we must do is add the different ingredients that we have indicated above, but always following the order from largest to smallest quantity.
  4. With the help of the spoon, we mix everything well again and strain it into a cocktail glass.
  5. Finally, we decorate it with red icing or with the green olive.
