A yellow citrus fruit. The peel is often used as a garnish while the juice incorporated into the drink for a tart flavor profile (citric acid).

Less sweet than the traditional Manhattan, due to substituting dry vermouth and a twist for sweet vermouth and a cherry. Retain the cherry for a "half-dry" version.
