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.
- Made with Cynar 70. As one does. An excellent alternative to a Manhattan.
- Delicious!! I used perucchi sweet vermouth.
- loved this drink, lots of flavors and complexity makes a wonderful cocktail
- I find this a tad too bitter...but it tastes better as the ice melts!
- Good bourbon/cynar rich/warm slightly bitter drink. Used Bitter Truth Creole Bitters + Peychaud's
- Made with Bullitt and Ramazotti-pretty good-needs the orange peel
- soft and sweet. very drinkable
- Maybe tone down the Bourbon a bit
- Not bitter enough for me, a little too strong and sweet.
- Elijah Craig Small Batch bourbon; increased bourbon to 2 oz, added 1/2 dash of Angostura (per drink); nice Manhattan riff!
- Used Vermut Lacuesta instead of Carpano, but a nice cocktail.
- Strong 4. Great Cynar drink. Deep, smooth cola-like flavor a lot of the way through w/a little black licorice. Pretty intense. A little syrupy-sweet for me. Maybe try Rye next time.
