Lacrimosa

from PDT

  • 2 oz. Rittenhouse Bonded Rye Whiskey
  • .75 oz. Amaro Luxardo
  • .75 oz. Amaro Ciociaro

Stir with ice and strain over one large cube into a chilled rocks glass. Garnish with a flamed orange twist.

This dark, brooding Negroni variation, whose name means "tears" in Latin, substitutes rye for gin, amaro for sweet vermouth, and Luxardo Bitter for Campari. —David Slape, Fall 2008
