Well, I went and bought some Rye and Sweet Vermouth in anticipation of creating the perfect Manhattan. Results: Let's say I'm not a big fan of rye, but I can see acquiring the taste for it. However, that vermouth crap is just NASTY! Who can drink that shit and say they like the taste? I had to catch the cat and lick his ass just to get that vermouth taste out of my mouth. YUCK! Pass the raw oysters and broccoli please.
