I transferred from Manhattan to SF. Now I'm serving a Manhattan Transfer 6-8pm! Here are the ingredients: bourbon, Cocchi di Torino vermouth, nocino walnut liqueur (Nux Alpina, or try for Napa-based Monteverdi), bitters, cherries. Big thanks to Greg, bartender , for his help and patience developing this.
