La Viña

La Viña cocktail with rye, Amaro Nonino, sweet sherry, and orange bitters

La Viña is a beautiful recipe from Alex Day at Death & Co. It’s like a gentler, sweeter Manhattan, with sherry and sweet amaro making for a spicier, more exotic replacement for vermouth.

Day calls for Lustau’s East India Solera for the sherry, a favorite of ours. Other sweet sherries would work as well, but a super-duper-sweet sherry like Pedro Ximenéz might overpower the drink’s delicate balance. For the sweet amaro, Nonino is called for – but if you have a favorite sweet amaro, give it a whirl here!

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
