    .5 oz. Laird's BIB
    .5 oz. Yellow Chartreuse
    I ended up making the top recipe on Friday and, for me the, .75 of Chartreuse defintely overpowered the Rit.

    I made another go of it on Saturday and think I dialed it in pretty good for my tastes.

    I settled on the following

    2.5oz Ritt
    1oz Lairds
    .5oz Green Chartruese

    This was pretty balanced and allowed the Ritt to remain at the forefront where it was rounded out by the Lairds and Chartreuese.

    I had never had a Diamondback but, must say I definitely enjoyed this one very much. I will definitely be making a few more of these.

    Re: Well Crafted Manhattan Contest

    My recipe is as follows:

    3oz Wild Turkey 101 rye or Rittenhouse BiB
    .5oz Dolin Rouge
    .5oz Dolin Dry
    2-3 dashes Angostura or Miracle Mile Sour Cherry bitters
    stir until bored
    garnish with wide strip of orange or lemon peel, squeezed 3 times

    I don't like to light the orange oils with a match because I feel like there's always a burned taste left in the drink.

    Great recipe -- looking forward to trying it. Is this basically a 'perfect'? What does the Dolin Dry add?

    A "perfect manhattan" includes equal parts sweet and dry vermouth. You can actually make any cocktail that requires sweet vermouth "perfect" by using equal parts sweet and dry vermouth; it's not specific to manhattans.

    Thank you! I made two of these last night - great cocktails. I modified the recipe to suit my tastes; I love green chartreuse but in very small quantities.

    2oz Rittenhouse BiB
    1oz Laird's BiB
    .5oz Green Chartreuse

    The next time I make one I'm going to start with an absinthe rinse and see how that goes...
