Sounds fabulous. I've never tried a Manhattan but will soon. I'll try your recipe.

I'm drinking mostly sparkling lime water with pineapple vodka. Totally unsexy but low in all the bad stuff while still maintaining taste.
You must try. I’m somewhat of a cocktail aficionado (snob) and in my mind the Manhattan is the unquestioned king of cocktails. A proper martini, a good gin and vermouth, is the only thing that comes close.

I definitely will. I also love a proper martini and thought I'd found paradise in a gin bar in York, England last summer. I do love a good stinger too. I love a good single malt too.

How does one pronounce that? I tried to order it off a menu once and sounded like an idiot.

Do not rule out a Rob Roy as a great before dinner cocktail.

I like zombies.It seems everywhere you order one has a different recipe. That's ok and part of the fun. Only thing to remember is if they don't have a recipe (on the menu or the bar tender has it down), don't order it there!
Original recipe (I think) https://www.esquire.com/food-drink/drinks/recipes/a3763/zombie-drink-recipe/
For various reasons it changes, e.g no 151 proof rum.

my favorite recipe:
1 shot dark rum
1 shot light rum
1 shot medium rum
1 shot apricot brandy
1 shot blue curacao
Orange-passion fruit juice
top off with 1/2 oz cherry brandy.

I usually stick to a two drink limit with this one.

Manhattans and negronis also go very well with cinzano if you like it a bit more tart .
Another option is to use Cynar in a negroni versus Campari. Never tried Cinzano in a Manahattan, new territory. So many cocktails to try , so little liver....

I got home from the ski shop today, poured a glass of soda water then realized it was missing scotch.
