  • Nice. Like a drier Manhattan, lighter on its feet. 3.5, if I could. — ☆☆☆
  • Dry and bitter, in a good way.A bit milk-chocolatey on the swallow. — ☆☆☆

In Regarding Cocktails, Chad

In Regarding Cocktails, Chad Solomon claimed credit for this Brooklyn variation. There, the recipe calls for 2 oz rittenhouse, 1 oz dolin dry, 2 t luxardo maraschino, and 1 t cynar.  That's also the ohgo.sh recipe.  Perhaps this is more definitive?

Weirdly, I had one just last

Weirdly, I had one just last night for the first time in forever. Somehow my recipe says 1/4 oz each maraschino and Cynar. It's damn good that way, too.
