red hook

2oz Rye (mine was made with gin, bartender's recommendation)
1/2oz Punt e Mes
1/4 - 1/2oz Maraschino to taste

Stir with ice, serve in cocktail glass

Mmm, it had a real Maraschino cherry in it. I cannot wait to get my hands on those (a local gourmet food store is getting in the Luxardos for me, via a personal connection. I'll publicize once I get my hands on my share!).

And damnit: now I need to buy Punt e Mes.

I first had this at B-Side and it was a good Manhattan variant. Now I just make them at home (I could've made it before that and thought of doing so, but there are only so many drinks one can make). While the B-Side has some good drinks on their menu, their service is slackerly and their drink pouring slightly haphazard (both the antithesis of Eastern Standard).

One of our new favorite bars, Deep Ellum, pours its drinks often without measuring. It's all done by the owner Max who we seem to trust to do so. We haven't had a drink that came out wrong yet there.
