This cocktail from Gramercy Tavern in NYC is a take on a Boulevardier (which is like a Negroni, but with bourbon or rye instead of gin). Here, spicy rye is the star, complemented by the bittersweet Sicilian amaro, Cynar.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces rye, such as Rittenhouse
  • 1 ounce Cynar
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth
  • Brandied cherry

Directions

  1. 1.

    Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add rye, Cynar, and sweet vermouth, and stir until very cold, about 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a brandied cherry in the bottom of the glass.
