The mysterious Manhattan cocktail evolved in the early 1870’s. The origin of the drink itself has been connected to two stories. The first story begins inside New York City’s Manhattan Club where Jennie Jerome, mother of Randolph Churchill was hosting a banquet in honor of Samuel J. Tilden. One of the guests at the party, Dr. Lain Marshall, began making drinks for the other guests. His creation named for the venue, the Manhattan Cocktail was born.
However, the lack of a definite date casts questions on the credibility of the tale. There are reports that Lady Randolph was in Europe and pregnant at the time that the party took place.
The second story a more widely accepted version of how the Manhattan cocktail came into existence, begins with a bartender named William F. Mulhall. William worked at the Hoffman House for 30 years. In a story that he wrote in the 1880s, he claims that, “the Manhattan Cocktail was invented by a man named Black, who kept a place ten doors below Houston Street on Broadway in the 1860s. He also suggested that the Manhattan was the most famous drink in the world during its time.” Although this story seems more plausible, the delay in recording the facts until 20 years after its creation is also questionable.
Like its story, the Manhattan cocktail has been served in multiple versions over the course of time. Here are recipes for a few different versions you can try.
