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.

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.

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!
