12 oz Crème de Cacao
12 oz Sweet vermouth, Carpano Punt e Mes
1 t Cherry syrup (scant; see note)

A version of this is now served at Parliament in Dallas, TX (called the Ancho Cherry Manhattan), swapping Heering for the syrup & then passing cherry wood smoke through the chilled drink.
From other users
  • Increase spirit by one ounce
  • Boozy, spicy, sweet. Used cherry heering. Pushed the rye to 2 oz, a little cloying otherwise. Tempted to go to 2&1/2 rye. — ☆☆☆

Used cherry heering and

Used cherry heering and pushed the rye to 2 oz, as the initial drink was a little cloying for me (spicy tootsie roll). Tempted to push the rye to 2.5.
