Black Manhattan #2
Saved by 209 People
About this Cocktail

A variation on a Black Manhattan. The Rittenhouse bonded stands up nicely to the richness of the Averna. The chocolate bitters add a Oaxacan aspect that's unexpected but just right.

  • 2 oz. Rittenhouse 100 proof bonded rye
  • 1 oz. Averna
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • 2 dashes angostura
  • 3 dashes Aztec chocolate bitters.

Combine all, stir and garnish with lemon peel.

    Sounds like a perfect way to start a weekend.

    This is a smart cocktail. I strained mine up. Used Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye, everything else the same. Although, if you call it a Black Manhattan, shouldn’t it be called Harlem???
