What are you drinking these days? Fall/Winter Cocktails 2013-2014

Didn't see a recent thread on this, so thought I'd start one.

Last night I made up an interesting twist on the Manhattan that went down way too smoothly:

2 oz. rye (I used Old Overholt)
1/2 oz. sweet red vermouth (I used Noilly Pratt)
1/2 oz. Belle de Brillet (pear and cognac liqueur)
2-3 dashes Scrappy's cardamom bitters

Stir and strain over a (large) cube of ice. I was too lazy to dig out a garnish but a pear slice or cherry would be nice.

How about you? Any new recipes or old favorites for the holiday season?
