"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)."

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 verm...

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!

I like to use dry vermouth to cut down on the sweetness bit
