Easy, bold, a Manhattan—whiskey, vermouth, bitters—is the wintry choice for Negroni drinkers. For Italian American boosters and herbal amaro lovers, Molly Cohen, of NYC's Hundred Acres, is currently offering a new take on the Manhattan called the Ellis Island. Watch the above clip to learn how to show off and make the cocktail for friends at home.

The Ellis Island
2 ounces rye whiskey (preferably Rittenhouse)
1 ounce Averna amaro
Dash of orange bitters

Combine all ingredients. Add a few cubes of ice, stir and serve garnished with a cherry.
