    Equal parts rye, Domaine de Canton, and Italian sweet vermouth. Heavy on orange bitters and orange twist. It tastes of vanilla, ginger, warm spice, and obviously orange. The vermouth and ginger liqueur remove any harshness, super smooth.

    Sounds great. Does it have a name?

    The bar I discovered it at calls it The Old West Side but googling that will only turn up results for a completely different drink. I'm guessing this bar invented it (although they make it with bourbon).

    I don't think its a stretch to assume the name comes from the fact that its kind of a cross between an Old Fashioned and a Manhattan with the combo of whiskey/rye, bitters, sweet vermouth, and then subbing in the simple syrup on an Old Fashioned with the ginger liqueur.

    That ginger-infused cognac sounds delightful. I will pick some up today and try your drink this weekend.

    Never heard of the Domaine de Canton, I don't know if I've seen it either. Anyway, I'll look next time at BevMo and give it a try.
