Once you try these you may need to go back to a cheaper whiskey!! Extremely tasty and addicting! I make them shaken. 'Up' on a cool day before dinner, or with ice on a hot day anytime. Good quality ingredients are the key to making this drink unforgettable. However, very well worth it, (if you're over the age of 45 and a Manhattan lover).

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. Read More

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. Read More

This is my mom's favorite drink. I've made it for her twice. She really enjoys it but she says it's a little stronger than she's used to. I might try a little less SoCo next time. Read More
