The Amaro Week cocktail series continues with the Black Manhattan, an amaro cocktail that’s a riff on the classic.
The Black Manhattan is a riff on the classic Manhattan cocktail that’s simple to make and super delicious. It swaps Averna for sweet vermouth adding a herbal, spicy and bittersweet note. We like it with a good rye whiskey though you can use bourbon as well.⠀
For more information about amari, refer to the Essential Guide to Amaro.
