It was first mixed for the opening night of an opera called "Rob Roy." The recipe first appeared in The Savoy Book, published by The Savoy Hotel of London in 1930.

 The Spirit World - Cocktail Recipe
You'll also note that this drink is a little smaller in size (just a little over 2 ounces of total liquid), as such I recommend that you treat it as a "celebration" of the spirit and the season, rather than a "big cold one" to knock down after work.
As you might expect, out of 4,000 cocktails there are a lot of them which really should never see the light of day, but once in a while you run into something that shows a little promise.
So it is most likely that the cocktail was invented sometime during the later half of the 1920’s, if not in 1928 itself to celebrate this amazing feat.

A Manhattan is a cocktail made with rye or bourbon whiskey, sweet vermouth (proportions vary from a "sweet" 1:1 to a "dry" 4:1, but the classic mixture is 2:1), and a dash of Angostura bitters, stirred with ice and strained into a Martini cocktail glass, garnished with a Maraschino cherry with a stem.
These days, bitters are omitted by many barmen unless specifically requested, however, purists will maintain the bitters are required to offset the sweetness of the whiskey and vermouth.

There aren’t that many cocktails that use Scotch, mostly because its rather strong and smoky flavor have a hard time blending well with other flavors, for this reason it is best to use a blended Scotch instead of a Single Malt.

The Bronx Cocktail, reportedly created at the bar at the old Waldorf-Astoria in New York, was named by a bartender who had recently visited the Bronx Zoo.
