The Manhattan, 2 Ways
Perhaps the first extension of the martini, the Manhattan is said to
have been invented at a banquet hosted by Lady Randolph Churchill (Jenny
Jerome, Winston Churchill’s mother) in New York’s Manhattan Club. The
occasion was in honor of presidential candidate Samuel J. Tilden. The
success of the banquet made the drink fashionable, later prompting
several people to request the drink by referring to the name of the club
where it originated: “The Manhattan.”
