Little Italy

Recipe: Little Italy (serves one)

  • 2 oz. rye whiskey
  • 3/4 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 1/2 oz. Cynar
  • maraschino cherry

Stir rye, sweet vermouth, and Cynar in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into cocktail glass and garnish with maraschino cherry.


We’ve been on a Cynar kick since making the Bitter Giuseppe. This recipe, a twist on the Manhattan, was created by Audrey Saunders at Pegu Club in New York City. It’s named after the NYC neighborhood, and combines American rye whiskey with Italian ingredients.
