Not really! There is not much in the way of nutrition in Manhattan. This cocktail is made with maraschino cherries, citrus fruit, whiskey, vermouth, and bitters. When drunk in large amounts, it can negate the few good benefits that you get from drinking it. Here are the main ingredients of Manhattan and what they do for you: 

·     Whiskey – While this is claimed to be good for the heart, drinking too much of this can do the opposite.

·     Bitters – This alcoholic beverage is flavored with herbs and roots. Traditional medicine believes that this can help immensely with digestion and help the digestive organs to function well.

Therefore, healthy or not, drinking in small amounts is the key. You can  try this manhattan cocktail in moderation.
