Whither "Perfect"?

I've never been a huge Perfect Manhattan fan, but I'm really enjoying the bottle of High West OMG silver rye and thought a lighter variant might be nice.

2 oz High West OMG silver rye

.5 oz Cocchi Americano

.5 oz Dolin dry

dash of Ang orange

Stir, strain, lemon twist.

This was good. The silver rye has a lot of dry fruity notes, played well with the floral notes of the Dolin.

Perfect Redhook > Redhook

What the world needs is Punt e Mes Dry.

So what did you use in your Perfect Redhook?

2 oz rye

1/2 oz Punt e Mes

1/2 oz Maraschino

1/2 oz Dolin Dry

1 homemade cherry, vastly inferior to Luxardo.

I've also used 1/4 oz each of the vermouths. That works too. I bet you could do 1/3 oz of all three too. It seems to be an indestructible recipe, like the Negroni or the Manhattan.
