"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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!
The hubs....aka the Manhattan King....loved it. The bitters do help with the extra sugar. Added extra cherry juice, just for his personal preference.
Have you made a batch lately? They're everybody's favorite.
