Southern Comfort Manhattan

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).
