A must-try for American whiskey enthusiasts, and a long-time staple across the cocktailian landscape from home bars to the pro league. This complex, potent rye is perfect for a Manhattan, old fashioned, or any other cocktail that calls for a solid rye backbone.

2 oz / 60 ml Rittenhouse rye
1 oz / 30 ml Cocchi Vermouth di Torino

Stir with ice and strain up or on rocks if you want. Squeeze an orange peel on top, not to close, and discard. Eat a couple cherries if that's your jam and get out the jazz records. Let's chill.
