Legend suggests that The Manhattan— rather appropriately—originated in New York City. In the early 1870s, Lady Randolph Churchill (Winston’s mother) hosted a grand banquet in honor of presidential hopeful Samuel J. Tilden, and Dr. Iain Marshall invented a stately beverage to suit. Though differing accounts appear regarding the true origins of this beverage, there’s no denying its popular and timeless appeal.
