The White Manhattan Cocktail

Courtesy Stacie Stewart, bar director, Whiskey Dry and Milkwood, Louisville, KY 

Is this a martini or a vodka-based Manhattan, a drink usually made with rye whiskey? The answer lies somewhere in between. It’s no wonder that Stewart’s vodka pick is one made by a renowned whiskey distiller. The finishing touch? Orange bitters, “because they’re reminiscent of the orange twist in a whiskey Manhattan,” she says.

About the Vodka

Wheatley Vodka is a small-batch spirit crafted by Harlen Wheatley, master distiller at Buffalo Trace Distillery, a Kentucky whiskey maker. And yes, wheat is a key component. The vodka is notably soft on the palate, which makes it ideal for a martini-style drink where the spirit takes the starring role.


2 ounces Wheatley Vodka
1 ounce Dolin Blanc Vermouth
2 dashes orange bitters
Orange peel, for garnish


In rocks or stemmed glass, stir together all ingredients (except garnish) with ice. Garnish with thick piece of orange peel.
