    Love EO, but the Manhattan is not very good. Way too much vermouth. Now I know why 1.5 oz or rye and 1.75 oz of sweet vermouth. Way too much. The star of the show should be the rye

    And about those typos: sweet vermouth poisoning.

    I have an idea of why it posted my comment twice -- I probably double-clicked POST COMMENT. Ad for why it prepended backslashes to every apostrophe: no clud.

    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.

    johndixon548, I tried it with triple sec, and it's just as nice. A wonderful drink.

    Great drink. Not sure how new t isS Pretty sure the Savoy advocates a 50:50 Manhattan with either dash of Curaçao or Maraschino angostura bitters and a lemon twist. Maybe called Old Standard Manhattan

    Is this heresy, or could, just possibly, one use Triple Sec in place of Grand Marnier? I have no GM in the house.....

    Having never had a Manhattan, I tried this one as well as the classic. This is my favorite by far.
