8. Manhattan - "Some Like It Hot" - New York

A blend of whiskey, sweet vermouth and bitters, the Manhattan is best left to those who can handle their liquor. It's believed that the drink first appeared in New York City in the 1870s at the exclusive Manhattan club, for which it is named. Since its inception, the Manhattan has inspired many derivatives like the Rob Roy, the Cuban Manhattan and the Southern Manhattan.
