I get it -- 'Employees Only' is a bar. I didn't know that in the beginning -- I thought it was just a very clever name for a cocktail. After tasting this, I thought that the 'Employees Only Manhattan' was a way to make the staff give up drinking. OK, if you're mad about vermouth, I guess you might enjoy this. I'll concede that it's different. But it's a terrible thing to do to good rye. I'm glad for all of you who have discovered this and like it. I'm going back to 2:1 or 3:1, depending on my mood. Plus the bitters, of course, and a teaspoon of cherry juice.
