Unnamed Cocktail with Rye whiskey, orange liqueur and high wire southern amaro

Here is a great cocktail I kind of threw together. It’s based on the classic 2:1 with something bitter formula. I got a bottle of Cody Road Rye for Christmas, and have been loving it. I didn’t want to make a Manhattan, but used that as a jumping off point. I poured 2 oz into a mixing tin and added 1 oz of Harlequin Orange Liqueur. For the “bitter” component I used 1/4 oz of High Wire‘s Southern Amaro, my favorite new spirit. Stir on ice and strain. If you come up with a great name for this drink, let me know.

If you like what you see, please consider hiring me for an in-home dinner or cooking lesson. I run a personal chef business based out of Frederick, MD. Get more information here. Thank you.
