San Gennaro

This take on the Manhattan is Andrew Pollard's tribute to Italian American culture and the annual San Gennaro festival in New York's Little Italy. He combines rye, a quintessentially American spirit, with three from Italy: citrusy Averna amaro, spicy Campari and the sweet vermouth Carpano Antica Formula.
