    I usually go with Rittenhouse 100 for my Manhattans, but grabbed a bottle of Willett recently.
    When I want to use Bourbon, I find that OGD114 has enough spice to work well.

    I would say go for it, I really enjoyed it and now need to go buy some Fernet so I can make it at home.

    Best regards, Tony

    I saw a recipe that had a mint sprig as a garnish. How about yours?

    Just procured some Luxardo Maraschino liqueur so had to try a Red Hook. Very tasty and, I think, open to some variations. I had to improvise with no Punt e Mes on hand. Just used Carpano Antica and Fee Bros Barrel Aged Bitters. Also used Jeff10 rye. May go up the proof chain on the next go around. Maybe Willett FE.


    Edit,here is the original recipe I started from:

    Red Hook


    2 ounces rye whiskey
    1/2 ounce Punt e Mes
    1/4 – 1/2 ounce maraschino, to taste
    Stir with ice, strain into chilled cocktail glass.

    No idea what it's called, but my wife heard the word "bourbon' on TV and wrote it down for me.
    Muddled strawberries, mint, sugar, and vanilla bean, with Bourbon (EC12) and Club Soda. Not bad on a hot evening.

    Both of these sound great, and it so happens I have all of the raw materials on hand ... guess I have my afternoon planned!
