We'll Take Manhattan

I loathe Sara Jessica Parker for making the Manhattan a chick drink. Now I get asked who the drink is for when I order it, like I'm getting it for a girl. No, it's for me, not a girl. How can a whiskey based drink be feminine?

This is hands down my favorite drink. I especially love it as an example of how different proportions can make a COMPLETELY different drink, when compared to the Valentino, which is 1 part Campari, 2 parts sweet vermouth, 3 parts gin. While very different from the Negroni, it is very delicious, and a great way to stretch out your Campari stash when you have less expensive gin and vermouth.
