- SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink
When Andrew Pollard created this Manhattan variation, his objective was “to take a cocktail that’s usually identified as a tough guy’s drink and make it approachable.” He describes The Mayan as “sweet, spicy, boozy and balanced. Every sip feels like a warm hug.” Leftover infused vermouth can be stirred into coffee or poured over vanilla ice cream (any extra chocolate-covered cherries would be good with ice cream, too).
- Fill a pint glass with ice. Add the rye, amaro, Cinnamon-Fig Vermouth, bitters and cayenne pepper and stir well. Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish the drink with the skewered chocolate-covered cherries.
