Black Manhattan

Nightcap Cocktail Recipes

Quick Facts

If you love a good Manhattan, then you’ll love this spin on the classic cocktail. This cocktail recipe swaps in Italian amaro for a cocktail that’s even more sophisticated—and tasty—than the original. The averna adds a layer of complexity with its deep, bittersweet flavor.


  • 1 oz Italian Amaro (like Averna)
  • 2 oz Bourbon Whiskey
  • 1-2 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • Garnish: Brandied Cherry


Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass. Stir well with ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with a cocktail cherry.
