RECIPE

Bensonhurst

Patrick Spears/Supercall

This variation on the Manhattan was invented in 2006 by acclaimed bartender Chad Solomon, who lived near the Brooklyn neighborhood for which the drink is named. It begins with the familiar base of spicy rye whiskey and is balanced with a measure of dry vermouth. Maraschino liqueur and the Italian artichoke-flavored amaro Cynar round things out to create a deep, dark cocktail with a serious kick.
