    Re: My Best Manhattan So Far

    I will keep that in mind Bobby. . . . I know that I have taken a little of an interest in Manhattans recently, but especially my Dad (who will be in Bardstown this Dec.) LOVES the things now, and would probably enjoy trying the variation.

    Thanx,
    TomC

    Re: My Best Manhattan So Far

    Hi,

    This thread inspired me to try a Manhattan for the first time. I made it with Rye. I see you used OGD. What do you all think of using bourbon vs rye in a Manhattan? I have no basis on which to compare my concoction, so I'm not sure if I made it right or not. I used 3 oz of Jim Beam Rye, 1 oz of sweet vermouth, a couple dashes of Angostura bitters and a cherry. It tastes OK, it may grow on me. I might like it better with bourbon.

    I liked it better with bourbon, but the only rye available locally here is Old Overholt. I wanna try it with WT Rye. I think OGD BIB is about the best out of all I have mixed in so far.

    Tom,
    Thanks for your feedback. I currenty don't have OGD BIB, but I think I'll give it a try with a bourbon to see how it compares. I also have a few other ryes, including Old Overholt, but for some reason, I just decided to use the JB Rye. Time to experiment with a few other things I guess!
    Bob
