In my never ending quest for the perfect manhattan, I may have a contender.

2 oz Bulleit Bourbon
3/4 oz sweet vermouth
3 drop bitters
1/2 oz Kirschwasser.

Bulleit really isn't sweet enough for my taste for a manhattan, but I normally don't like to add syrup, since that's going too far the other direction. The kirschwasser is really striking a nice balance on the sweet and bringing a whole ton of other flavors to the party, with lots of floral notes on the nose. I'm gonna have to play more with this idea. Gonna have to go pick up some Vya vermouth.

I'd love to try that but ever since an unfortunate encounter with a lot of Canadian club when I was a teenager I can't so much as put my lips on one without gagging.

HoG, I like the cut of your jib. I'm a vodka martini man, but I'm guessing I like them much too dry for your taste.
