Kensington

½ oz Averna
¼ oz Benedictine
¼ oz Rothman & Winter apricot liqueur
2 oz Rittenhouse rye
2 dashes Angostura

stir, big rock, stuck cherry

Finally, a Manhattan variation variation I feel is good enough to name. Based on “The Slope” by Julie Reiner of the Clover Club, this recipe replaces ¾ oz Punt y Mes with Averna and Benedictine. The result is completely different but still delicious.

Named for the neighborhood where my grandmother lives (with whom I briefly lived, too).
