    I think "a really bad manhattan" is an oxymoron. Matter of fact, a couple of these & I become a moron-- just ask my wife. However, I personally prefer a ratio of 3 Southern Comfort to 1 DRY vermouth ( Martini & Rossi), a twist of lemon- stirred not shaken-- & on the rocks. And please , no bitters.  -  25 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This would be a 5-star recipe but it is missing one ingredient. You need to add about a tablespoon of grenadine or until it changes color. Otherwise, this is a great recipe.  -  14 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My absolutely most favorite drink. I've never made them at home until now. Thanks!  -  02 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
