San Gennaro

This one was suggested by my friend and colleague Joni Klippert, and has the merit of consisting of ingredients I already have. That is, except for the Luxardo cherries, which I was long overdue to procure.

  • 1 oz Rye
  • 1 oz Amaro Montenegro
  • 1 oz sweet vermouth (M&R)
  • 1/4 oz Campari
  • Luxardo cherry for garnish

Shake or stir. The original recipe says use a coupe glass, but because it’s a Manhattan derivative I think it should go in a cocktail glass. Turns out I wasn’t paying attention and used the wrong side of the jigger, so I made a double recipe. That worked out ok. This is a delicious cocktail and it’s not as strong as a Manhattan.

  1. From F&W Magazine directly to your home bar! I can’t wait to try it… sounds absolutely delightful!

  2. Not thrilled with this drink. Very sweet and rich. Perhaps with about double the rye or a bit more Campari, a distinctive taste might come through. This might be good as a digestif to finish off a heavy meal. I’ll play around with the recipe a bit to see if I like it better in different proportions.
