    I think the presumption is that a Manhattan is served up, but it is perfectly acceptable to serve it on the rocks. I generally like mine up unless I am walking around (like at a happy hour) and want to minimize the chances of spilling my drink.

    You just gotta take a few nice gulps upfront.

    I came to manhattans through boating. Insulated cup, on the rocks, Canadian whisky, blue water, topless women. Hard for life to get much better than that.

    Try it when you’re only 22 and in the company of much older adults who never stray farther from their comfort zone then a whisky-ginger.

    I attempted to get my order in quick and painlessly.

    Hendricks, 4 to 1, Stirred with a twist.

    No dice. I was thoroughly mocked for being pretentious.

    Ah well, the agony of trying to avoid a salty vodka slurry.
