From other users
  • Like a manhattan on steriods. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Subbed Maraschino liqueur and some juice from bottled cherries. 1/2way through added 2 drops fig-citrus bitters which was nice. Capable Manhattan variant. — ☆☆☆☆
  • after dinner — ☆☆☆☆
  • Made w/o the syrup (I don't think it needs it). This is a good cocktail but feels a little unremarkable given the preponderance of similar stirred brown drinks. — ☆☆☆
  • Probably better with sweet vermouth — ☆☆☆
