This drink is even better a Manhattan, thanks to three different bitter elements. Created by mixologist James Ives, the Northern Standard is a full-flavored cocktail that uses Knob Creek rye aged in charred barrels to balance out the richness of Carpano. Equally strong as it is smooth.
2 1/4 ounces Knob Creek Rye
1 ounce Carpano Antica vermouth
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
1 teaspoon Tempus Fugit Fernet Angelico (or Fernet Branca)
1 teaspoon Tempus Fugit Gran Classico (or your favorite amaro)
Luxardo maraschino cherries for garnish
How to Make It
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice to the wash line. Stir for 45 revolutions, adding ice as needed. Strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with one cherry skewered on a bamboo pick and serve quickly.
