The Black Manhattan is a riff on a classic Manhattan cocktail, where the sweet vermouth is replaced with a different amaro.
Volstead's Black Walnut Manhattan follows in the footsteps of the Black Manhattan, but doesn't replace the sweet vermouth entirely. Instead, it pairs a small amount of a drier Merlot-based sweet vermouth with the nutty complexity of Nux Alpina -- a black walnut liqueur.
Even though it's based with hot 120-proof bourbon, the resulting cocktail is a rich, rounded, and warming-for-winter Manhattan.
- 1 ½ oz Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve bourbon
- ¾ oz Nux Alpina Walnut Liqueur
- ½ oz Brovo Jammy Sweet Vermouth
- 1 Dash Angostura Bitters
- 3 Dashes of Fee Brothers Black Walnut Bitters
- 1 Luxardo Maraschino Cherry
Combine all ingredients, except garnish, in a mixing glass over ice. Stir about 30 times to combine, chill, and dilute. Serve in a chilled coupe glass, and garnish with the Luxardo cherry.
