October is Manhattan Month

 In Uncategorized, Vya

It’s October and do you know what that means? At Quady it’s time to enjoy the end of harvest and to relax into the cooler weather with some satisfying Manhattans!

For the month of October we are offering 20% OFF on Vya Sweet Vermouth so you can enjoy the season and experiment with your favorite Manhattan recipes at home. We will be sharing our favorite recipes all month long on Facebook and Instagram, and we’d love to know yours too!

This first recipe, the Classic 50:50 Manhattan, is a recipe that really shows off the magic of Vya. With any other vermouth, it might feel out of proportion, but not Vya Sweet Vermouth, which pairs fantastically with the vanilla notes in rye whiskey in this recipe. Legend has it that the very first Manhattan was half rye whiskey and half vermouth, offering a less boozy and more flavorful experience, that’s also easier to repeat!

The Classic 50:50 Manhattan


1 1/2 oz. Vya Sweet Vermouth

1 1/2 oz. Rye Whiskey (or bourbon if you prefer)

3 dashes Regan’s Orange Bitters (or your preferred bitters)

Garnish: Orange twist


Combine ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into glassware. Garnish with an orange twist.
