  • A fun, subtler variation on the Manhattan. I used brugal anejo and tippleman's double spiced falernum. Per the note I reduced falernum to 0.25 ts. I could really taste the wood aging in this drink though it wasn't assertive.
  • Made with Fair rum and Lustau sweet vermouth-really good — ★★★★★
  • Good, but might try with Demerara rum, or Punt e Mes instead of Carpano Antica. Or both. Something to give it bit more depth.

Wow, really tasty! Complex and rich. Used tart branded cherries to cut some of the sweetness.
