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

    Re: Some holiday cocktails for those who enjoy Manhattans

    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:

    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!

    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!

    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.
