Dating back to the late 19th century, the Manhattan is usually on the second page of any good bartending book (after the Old Fashioned, of course!). This iconic American cocktail has all the sophistication of the Big Apple without a ton of crazy ingredients. As long as you’ve got bitters, sweet vermouth, and whiskey, you could whip up this chic cocktail in minutes.

Before you start mixing your Manhattan, please don’t forget to add a pinch of our high-quality CBD oil! Just a half-dropperful of Tribe CBD oil is all you need to make this Gotham goodie extra soothing.

Like the Old Fashioned, some people prefer using bourbon in their Manhattan as opposed to rye whiskey. Although rye whiskey is the traditional choice, it has a slightly spicier flavor. We’re going to use rye whiskey in our recipe, but please substitute with bourbon if you want a sweeter flavor profile.

By the way, some bartenders add one dash of orange bitters to help balance rye whiskey’s harsh notes. Just keep in mind, orange bitters are not a standard component of a Manhattan…but then again, CBD isn’t either, so don’t let us stop you from experimenting!

CBD Manhattan

CBD Manhattan Recipe


  • 2 – 4 dashes angostura bitters
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 2 ounces rye whiskey
  • ½ dropperful of Tribe CBD oil (original)
  • Luxardo cherry


  • Place a few dashes of angostura bitters into a mixing glass.
  • Add sweet vermouth, rye whiskey, Tribe CBD oil, and plenty of ice.
  • Stir until the glass is chilled (about 45 seconds).
  • Strain into a pre-chilled cocktail glass.
  • Garnish with a Luxardo cherry.

You’ll notice we’ve chosen to use our original CBD oil in this cocktail recipe. Since a classic Manhattan doesn’t call for lemon or lime, we thought our citrus-flavored CBD oil might clash with the other ingredients. However, if you’re a fan of citrusy flavors, consider experimenting with Tribe CBD’s flavored CBD oil.
