    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.

    The EO take on cocktails cannot be beat............... Best manhattans ever! Although I did have a nice takeoff at Macao this past weekend (EO's sister bar)
