A Spiritual/Religious Cocktail -- The Holy Trinity Manhattan?

No one who knows me would accuse me of being a religious man.  That does not mean I have not had ephiphanies and transcendent experiences.  Those epiphanies and experiences extend into the realm of cocktails. For those of you who appreciate the value of a good Manhattan, I stumbled on a combination of what, for me, might be the perfect combination:

Does the glass make the cocktail better?
Does the glass (a gift from my wife) make the cocktail better?

2.25 ounces Willett Pot Still bourbon
.75 ounces Carpano Antica sweet vermouth
2 dashes Bittered Sling Moondog bitters

When I say this is a perfect Manhattan, I'm not referring to the technical definition (equal parts dry and sweet vermouth).  I mean perfect as in perfection, nirvana, etc. 

As we are on the cusp of Thanksgiving, I hope we all give thanks to our respective favorite cocktail combinations.
