Classic cocktails, revisited – “The Nolita”

A take on the classic Manhattan, this large cocktail features the mellow and sublime additions of Rammazzotti amaro with a dash of lemon bitters, or lemon twist. This cocktail is name after the Little Italy neighborhood in Manhattan

3/4 oz. sweet vermouth (Martini & Rossi)
3 oz. Bourbon or Rye Whiskey (Maker’s Mark, Wild Turkey or Old Overholt)
1-1/2 oz. Rammazzotti Amaro
1 dash Angostura bitters
1 lemon twist or dash of lemon bitters

Mix all together with ice in a cocktail shaker and stir until chilled. Pour into a chilled highball glass. Add 1 twist of lemon.

Seriously, this will soften any bourbon detractor. Why sip on anything else?
