  • Unctuous, multi-layered Manhattan substitute. Rich, warm.
  • Made this in the middle of August to use up some rye before moving--it's definitely more of a winter drink, but absolutely outstanding! Subbed Campari with a splash of Florio Amaro for the Gran Classico. — ★★★★★
  • Sub Campari with a little Amaro Nonino for Gran Classico — ★★★★
  • Unbelievably delicious! So well balanced. Agree that it is a touch too sweet and will try slightly more rye next time. — ★★★★★

Curated: bitters and twist to match source.


Delicious indeed. A touch sweet. I substituted Luxardo Bitter Bianco and used 1 1/2 oz rye and a long stir to combat the sugar.
