  • Tastes like what is is... a Manhattan with a touch of Cynar. 👍
  • Add orange bitters — ★★★★
  • 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 — ★★★
  • after dinner — ★★★★
  • Subbed Maraschino liqueur and some juice from bottled cherries. 1/2way through added 2 drops fig-citrus bitters which was nice. Capable Manhattan variant. — ★★★★
  • Like a manhattan on steriods. — ★★★★★

Added missing Maraschino syrup, and tweaked up attribution.

Made using homemade figs in syrup. Definitely not cherry, but worked nicely
