Black Manhattan | Cocktail Party

Black Manhattan

Black Manhattan cocktail with rye whiskey, Averna, Angostura bitters, and orange bitters

Veteran mixologist Todd Smith created the Black Manhattan when he worked at Bourbon & Branch in San Francisco. It’s a moody, flavorful twist on a classic Manhattan, with dark amaro (Smith calls for Averna) taking the place of sweet vermouth, and spicy rye in place of bourbon.

It’s a genius recipe that hits all the right notes: smooth, sweet, faintly herbal, and a little bit of spice and citrus from the rye and bitters.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
