Rather than bourbon, which has a tendency you to be heavy, and inconsistent, use Seagrams V.O. You'll love it. V.O., Sweet Vermouth (but just a dash), bitters (optional - I like mine without), and a lemon twist - peel rubbed around the rim before adding to the glass/liquid.

Hmmm I always used cherries in Rob Roy's and Manhattan's. Oh well! I do like cherries.

I have been trying to find Carpano Antica Formula for three years. Nobody has it. Where are you guys getting it. I have also been drinking Manhattan"s for over forty years and the garnish is a cherry. A twist is for Rob Roy's.

I like a perfect manhattan which calls for sweet and dry vermouth and if I get a twist with this I know the bartender knows what they are doing. I always as for a blended whiskey - I used to be able to get rye but that is rare now but never bourbon!!
