The Manhattan at Feeney's

Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week Jackalope Ranch brings you a tasty adult beverage from one of our favorite drinking establishments, complete with recipe. This week: The Manhattan at Feeney's. 

While the exact origins of the Manhattan are subject to debate, we know that it comes from 19th century New York -- and it carries quite a kick. The Manhattan at Feeney's is no different. 

The classic North Central Phoenix haunt (est. 1965) hosts Ladies' Night every Tuesday with $2 wells and $3.50 martinis. Print a 10 percent off coupon from the website and enjoy a happy hour that runs ... pretty much always. 

Check your pretension at the door, DO NOT talk about your job, and slow your roll down to 1965-levels -- better yet, get down to 1865 with a slick Manhattan.  

(Check out the recipe after the jump ...)


- 2 oz. (well, depending on your bartender) Crown Royal Canadian Whiskey
- .5 oz Sweet Vermouth
- Dash Angostura Bitters


1. Pour ingredients in to a shaker, with ice
2. Shake and let chill for two minutes
3. Strain in to a Martini glass
4. Garnish with a Maraschino cherry
5. Quickly forget about everything that has happened to you in the last 24 hours and argue with a goatee-ed man about college football.
