Grand Street Hot Toddy Cocktail

An herbal spirit like Italy’s bitter amaro is ideal as a digestif or to mix into cocktails.­ Amaro Montenegro, contained in the low-alcohol hot toddy variation here, has a nuanced, orange-tinged sweetness that balances the moderately bitter flavor profile. Amaro Nonino, Amaro CioCiaro, Meletti Amaro or Averna Amaro also work well in this drink.


1 chamomile tea bag
½ ounce Amaro Montenegro
½ ounce sweet vermouth
1 dash Angostura bitters
Lemon slice or wedge


In footed Irish coffee mug or Collins glass, steep tea in 4 ounces hot water for 3 minutes. Remove and discard tea bag. Add amaro, vermouth and bitters. Stir, then add lemon.
