Thanks for the links. I'm quite a fan of manhattans and will probably give these a try.

Gibson's Steakhouse in Chicago does a Rush St. Manhattan: Woodford, sweet vermouth, Cherry Heering. I had one last night there; I asked the bartender on a previous visit and I'm pretty sure he said 3-1-1 (like TSA liquid carry on guidelines). I upped the Cherry Heering to 2 and used Woodford Double Oaked. I also used Carpano Antica vermouth. 2 Luxardo cherries in the bottom. Can't remember if they use bitters (?orange bitters?); I didn't tonight. Here's the drink.

Nicely done there. I go through a bottle of Cherry Heering about every 3 months or so, it's a staple on my bar.

I know this sounds crazy, but the next time you want to have rye/ginger, put a little Cadillac Margarita-style float of Cherry Heering in there...it makes rye/ginger absolutely dynamite.

I'll even up the ante for you, and post my fave cocktail I make for my mom, courtesy of the legendary Murray Stenson:

The Master Of The Hounds - created by Murray Stenson, www.murrayaid.org (http://www.murrayaid.org), very minor adjustment by Brendan:

2oz Rye - Rittenhouse is a must, no baby Saz, it needs that spice
0.5oz Simple Syrup, I make 1-1
.75oz Cherry Heering
Angostura

Combine, stir, strain

Garnish - Flamed orange peel. If you flame it, they will drink it.

Voila!

It was. I'd recommend it.
or grab a bottle of Cherry Grand Marnier if you can find it. cherry flavor mixes great with whisky.
even had a scotch cocktail at Craft in NYC called Blood and Sand.

I'm definitely gonna try it, but I don't have Rittenhouse. choices are Bulleit, vanWinkle, Whistlepig, Saz 18.
I always have simple syrup in the fridge for margaritas. never remember if I do 1-1 or 2-1.

If you don't have Ritt, from that list, I'd just go Bulleitt, let me know what you think! The flamed orange is a BIG part of the drink, so don't skimp on dat!

From that list I was thinking Bulleit as well.
