Giada's Manhattan

This spin on a Manhattan is my ode to New York City! This cocktail is a really easy one to whip up, because it's pretty much all ingredients I already have in the bar (with a strip of orange peel for some aromatic flavor... and it's pretty!). Amaro adds a wonderful complex flavor, and even some medicinal qualities - you can read all about it here! To add to the NYC-theme of this drink, the particular Amaro I used, St. Agrestis, is made in Brooklyn - and it happens to be one of my favorites.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces rye whiskey
  • 1/2 ounce amaro liquor (such as St. Agrestis but whatever you have will do)
  • 1/2 ounce sweet vermouth (such as Campano Antica, but any sweet vermouth works)
  • 1 strip of orange zest

Instructions

  1. To a cocktail glass filled with ice add the rye, amaro liquor and sweet vermouth. Stir for 30 seconds to chill. Strain into a rocks glass with one large cube of ice (regular ice cubes will work as well) and garnish with the orange zest.
