Personal Notes:
Duke Gilbert, Jr., longtime friend and Dillon barrister of no small reputation perfected this recipe by repeated experimentation. The secret of the Honorable Gilbertís concoction is that he uses a glass baby bottle with measuring marks contained thereon. However this secret works at his home only, and strangely enough can be achieved by anyone else without using the juvenile measuring option. However, the true secret of the Manhattan is twofold: first, one must experiment with the proportions since some imbibers prefer just a bit more vermouth to bourbon; and, the second and main secret is that the drinker must like Manhattans to begin with.
