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.

That looks fantastic.

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:

The Master Of The Hounds - created by Murray Stenson, www.murrayaid.org, very minor adjustment by Brendan:

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!

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!
