    Manhattan Maneater

    I'll start out by saying, "I LIKE Manhattan's." That being said, I got home from work tonight and just wanted something different. I picked up my COMPLETE WORLD BARTENDER GUIDE and just started browsing and ran across this drink The "Manhattan Maneater" 1 1/2 oz. Whiskey, 2tbs. Southern Comfort, 1-2 dashes of orange bitters. I used Old Whiskey River and made it on the rocks. This tastes great! I'm not a big Southern Comfort Drinker, but it mixed great in this. I later tried adding a "little" sweet vermouth and that was enjoyable too. Anyone ever hear of or try this??? Give it a shot!

    My Father' s Family made a Manhattan very similar. I always thought using the sweet vermouth was strange but that never stopped that group from drinking them by the batch. At age ten I took a swig of one on the rocks that looked like Iced Tea to me, what a surprise I got!

    And actually, now that I look it wasn't orange (my mistake) it was Angostura Aromatic bitters, sorry my bad! But glad you were entertained by my wonderful sense of humor!!!
