"This recipe is definitely not traditional - except in my family. It is sweet, and meant to be! You will have to do the math for single servings, this is the way I got it from my Grandfather, who always made a batch (or two) for the Holidays." — yummyinthetummy

This recipe reads like that for a very sweet Manhattan. I scaled it down to one drink and as promisedit WAS very sweet, so not fair of me to judge. (The hot water is there to melt the sugar, I imagine). If you omit the sugar and sub grenadine (maraschino cherry "juice") that actually might lesson the toothache factor. I'm a sucker for a Bourbon Manhattan so this is a fun recipe to toy with!
