You are right about using high-quality ingredients - Maker's Mark for bourbon and Martini vermouth (dry for me). I pour the ingredients right in the glass which I have had chilling in the freezer all day! Got a Waterford martini glass on eBay... ah such a delight! It will spoil you for trying to drink a Manhattan made by anyone but your "ownself".
I use bitters also a classic manhattan made in bars. What I like is Jim Beam instead of regular bourbon with a little cherry juice. I have also found if you like cherries with your bourbon try Jim Beam Stag. It is so good just on the rocks. My mother in-law loves it on vanilla ice cream.
