Do The Right Thing

A variation on the Brooklyn Cocktail.
1 12 oz Rye, Rittenhouse 100
1 oz Apple brandy, Lairds 100 proof
23 oz CioCiaro
13 oz Dry vermouth, Dolin
1 bsp Amaretto, Disaronno
2 ds Bitters, Angostura
1 ds Orange bitters, Regans' orange bitters
1   Lemon peel
Instructions
Combine all liquors in mixing glass. Fill 3/4 with ice, stir for 20 seconds. Strain into chilled coupe. Express lemon peel above glass, gently wipe rim and stem with spent peel. Twist and use for garnish.
Notes
Round, full-bodied, complex. Velvety. The high proof of the spirits used maintains the balance against some sweet and flavorful liqueurs. Much... bigger... than a Manhattan. If using a different Amaretto, might need to adjust amount.
