Moscato-based Cocchi Vermouth di Torino lends a complex sweetness to a twist on a Manhattan made with rye and Lillet, developed especially for Capricorns by astrologer/bartender Patricia Clark Hippolyte as part of our Mixstrology series.
- 2 oz. rye whiskey
- 1 oz. Lillet
- 1⁄2 oz. Cocchi Vermouth de Torino
- 4 dashes orange bitters
- 1 large, thick orange peel, for garnish
- 1 maraschino cherry, for garnish (optional)
Place rye, Lillet, vermouth and bitters in a shaker with ice and stir. Rub orange peel around rim of a chilled martini glass; strain drink into glass. Twist orange peel over drink to release its oils and add to glass. Garnish with a cherry, if you like.
