So, she enlisted pro mixologist Leo Robitschek of NYC’s NoMad Bar to help teach her some key cocktail-making skills, as well as a few fantastic drinks to make at home. One of those drinks is the Mott & Mulberry (named for two iconic streets in NYC’s Little Italy), which features darkly flavorful amaro and fresh apple cider. Learn to make the drink using the GIF-illustrated how-to below, excerpted from a live-stream of the cocktail demo, which recently aired on F&W’s Periscope account.
