Death & Company New York City
New York, and the whiskey-based Manhattan, were both at the forefront of the country's first mixed-drinks golden age. So it's only fitting that for the cocktail's current renaissance, a slice of another Big Apple borough would take center stage. Enzo Errico's Red Hook, a riff on the Manhattan, pairs rye with Punt e Mes vermouth, maraschino liqueur, and a touch of amaro.
1/4 cup (2 oz.) rye whiskey (such as Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whiskey)
1 tablespoon (1/2 oz.) Punt e Mes vermouth
1 tablespoon (1/2 oz.) Amaro Nardini
1 teaspoon maraschino liqueur
Lemon peel twist
How to Make It
Place all ingredients (except lemon twist) in a cocktail shaker filled with ice, and stir. Strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
