From other users
  • Balanced Manhattan variant — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • The fernet was a little strong, I think I'll scale it back a smidge next time... — ☆☆☆☆
  • Boozy and surprisingly dry. I think I might like these better than Manhattans. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Not as sweet as your standard Manhattan. The Fernet adds some complexity and interest. — ☆☆☆☆☆
