Sorry for the dearth of posts in the last few days. We had our final dress rehearsals for the show and opened it tonight. I'll try to get a drink or two up over the weekend...
If you just can't wait, you can try my latest iteration of the classic Manhattan, one I'm calling the Golden Ratio Manhattan... it's a 2:1 ratio of whiskey (I've been using Canadian Club lately) to vermouth, and a 2:1 ratio of dry vermouth to sweet vermouth. So, if you wanted a nice big one, you could use 3 oz whiskey, 1 oz of dry vermouth and 1/2 oz of sweet vermouth. Add a dash each of Angostura and orange bitters, shake, and strain. There ya go.
