Manhattan Transfer

Manhattan Transfer cocktail with rye whiskey, dry vermouth, amaro, and orange bitters

We’re big fans of Manhattan-spec cocktails made with amaro; the simple template is a perfect way to appreciate the complex herbal flavors of a quality digestif.

Phil Ward’s Manhattan Transfer is perhaps the best in class, with dry vermouth taking the place fo the classic sweet and allowing for a greater focus on the amaro.

Ward calls for Ramazotti, an amaro with cola and orange flavors. Meletti, Montenegro, Lucano, or Averna would all do well as substitutes.

Ingredients

Instructions

Stir all ingredients with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Ward serves his without a garnish, but a cherry or orange twist wouldn’t be unwelcome.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
