"Once you try these you may need to go back to a cheaper whiskey!! Extremely tasty and addicting! I make them shaken. 'Up' on a cool day before dinner, or with ice on a hot day anytime. Good quality ingredients are the key to making this drink unforgettable. However, very well worth it, (if you're over the age of 45 and a Manhattan lover)." — Randy

2 (1.5 fluid ounce) jiggers
Southern Comfort liqueur
1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger
I think "a really bad manhattan" is an oxymoron. Matter of fact, a couple of these & I become a moron-- just ask my wife. However, I personally prefer a ratio of 3 Southern Comfort to 1 DRY vermouth ( Martini & Rossi), a twist of lemon- stirred not shaken-- & on the rocks. And please , no bitters.
This would be a 5-star recipe but it is missing one ingredient. You need to add about a tablespoon of grenadine or until it changes color. Otherwise, this is a great recipe.
My absolutely most favorite drink. I've never made them at home until now. Thanks!
My mother enjoys Southern COmfort manhattans. I found htis recipe, and she LOVED it!
I like to use dry vermouth to cut down on the sweetness bit
