Pretty tasty. I threw in about 3 more dashes Angostura thought. For my second drink (everyone needs at least 2 after a long days work...) I substituted the St. Germain with Amaro Punico. I felt those two complimented each other quite a bit.
I've been looking for this recipe ever since I had this cocktail at a hotel in Washington, D.C. It was soothing and uplifting at the same time. Now that I've found this version I'm making it tonight. Bottoms up!

Sounds interesting, I'll give it a try.

I've been making a "Brixton" Manhattan variation using Bulleit bourbon(with it's high-rye, spicy goodness) with St. Germain as a vermouth substitute(since it is cognac-based, thus grape connection), and fernet branca as the bitters. I'm garnishing it with an orange peel, and I've had a lot of success with it.

I love old fashioned bourbon, for sure will give it a try with the touch of St-Germain
