Tried Miller High Life in cans for the first time ever last week. I thought it was going to be this awesome beer and really live up to its name "The Champagne of Beers".

If you wanna give it a more sweet flavour try out a dash of maraschino liqueur. I mean maraschino cherries are garnish anyways. Maybe try Martini Rubino which is made out of red wine instead of white wine unlike all other vermouths, which gives it a kinda more sweet and fruity flavour. Buying even more expensive vermouths like antica is a little risky because vermouths will go bad in a relatively short time and if you don't like them too you wasted a lot of money.

Isn't Martini Rosso red wine? I mean, it's literally red. But yeah I don't think I'm gonna rebuy vermouth. Though I do wanna try the famous Martini sometime maybe. Or perhaps I just don't like cocktails that don't have either of sweetness or sourness.

Btw, what makes maraschino cherries special? I have never seen them in a store here (Germany). We have normal cherries in a jar, can those be used?

Sweed vermouth is red, but the colour comes from botanicals and shit like that. In most cases it's made from white wine even though it's red. Maraschino cherries are a different sort of cherries, which are stored in maraschino liqueur. But seriously you can put every fucking cherry you want in maraschino and put them in drinks for garnish.

Hard to say, there are a couple of contenders. I tried a lot of cocktails, but my favorites are still the classics: Martini, Manhatten, Old Fashioned and Negroni

And if I had to choose just one ... I guess I'd pick the Negroni? It's simple, delicious and feels like something that I could have at any time. It's kinda always appropriate, whether as a refreshing summer drink or after a big meal.

Martini rosso isn't particularly great for Manhattans, but not terrible imo. Did you use a fresh bottle or one that has already been open and then left around for a couple of months/years?

>I'm thinking maybe simple syrup would improve it.
No, simple syrup absolutely never ever belongs in a Manhattan. It's already sweet enough. If you don't like vermouth, make yourself a Fancy Whiskey Cocktail, that might be more to your taste:

Real Maraschino cherries is a specific breed of cherries from Croatia, conserved in Maraschino liqueur.
Nowadays the term is often used to refer to those bright, neon red, sugary "cocktail cherries".

Almost all vermouth recipes are similar to Manhattan, Negronis etc. The only one that is on the very sweet side and comes to my mind is the Blood and Sand which contains scotch (just buy a cheap blend like Johnnie Walker or Ballantines (whatever is on sale for 10-11€ atm), cherry liqueur (first try Eckes Edelkirsch for 6€ instead the expenisve and hard to come by Cherry Heering), sweet vermouth and fresh orange juice.
Another thing you could try would be utilizing more light, fruity or sweeter base spirits like cognac, rum etc. For example a Harvard, which is basically just a Manhattan that substitutes whiskey with cognac. Or a Vieux carre that contains cognac, whiskey, sweet vermouth, benedictine (not very common ingredient and kinda expensive, but hard to substitite), angostura and peychauds bitters. Peychauds are expensive af too in Germany and an uncommon ingredient too. Bitter Truth creole bitters are much cheaper. Maybe get one of those bitter truth travel sets and try those first before you buy big bottles.
