Made using homemade figs in syrup. Definitely not cherry, but worked nicely

Added missing Maraschino syrup, and tweaked up attribution.

From other users

Subbed Maraschino liqueur and some juice from bottled cherries. 1/2way through added 2 drops fig-citrus bitters which was nice. Capable Manhattan variant. (4 stars)
Like a manhattan on steriods. (5 stars)
