Robert, another wondful cocktail! I like your videos more now that you have been tasting your drinks and describing them. I also tried this one with Dolin and Carpano Antica Formula. The Dolin brought out very spicy notes and the Antica was still spicy but more subdued and mellow, which was my favorite. Other Savoy cocktails that use apple brandy include the Cota, Ante, and the last one in the book, the Zed Cocktail, all of which use Hercules. But what is Hercules?

I also recently ordered a Manhattan that came to the table with a foamy top--I couldn't even see that there was a cherry sitting on the bottom. But since the place was primarily a wine bar I just rolled my eyes and drank it.
On a brighter side, I came across a Manhattan variation in a Denver resturant called Duo. It is called a "Manhattan Transfer"--
1 1/2 oz High West Rye
3/4 oz Averna
1/2 oz Green Chartreuse
2 dashes Fee Brothers Rhubarb Bitters
Stirred and garnished with an orange twist and brandied cherry
It's wonderful, but sounds odd. Cheers.
