Reverse Cynar Manhattan of sorts
|1 1⁄2||oz||Bourbon, Buffalo Trace|
|3⁄4||oz||Sweet vermouth, Carpano Antica Formula|
Combine in a mixing glass then add large ice cubes. Stir then strain over large ice. Garnish with an orange peel expressed and inserted.
A very long flavor ride from sweet to spicy to bitter and back.

- Absolutely delicious. The small amount of CAF is apparent. Nice lingering bitter. Made with Knob Creek.
- Didn't have orange, but that would add a nice element. Used punt e mes, delicious.
- Excellent and will try upping the Antica next time
- Excellent Manhattan sub. Cynar adds welcome bitter undertones. A real Friday unwinding drink.
- As was said, good Manhattan alternative.
- As suggested by someone here, tried it with Ramazzotti and like it. Next time I'll bump the bourbon up in the mix (just a tad sweeter than I like it). I'll also try it with Rye.
- 12/27/16: Really, really good. I prefer this to a manhattan.
- I find this a tad too bitter...but it tastes better as the ice melts!
