At The Loyal, this sophisticated variation on a Manhattan is served with a shot of rosé Champagne on the side. Note: to create a “smoky cherry,” Tafuri soaks brandied cherries overnight in a smoky Islay Scotch. Use regular brandied cherries, if preferred.


2 ounces overprood rye, preferably Rittenhouse
1 ounce sweet vermouth 
2 dashes Angostura bitters
2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
1½ ounces Brut Rosé
Brandied cherry (for garnish)
Orange peel (for garnish)


In mixing glass, stir together first three ingredients with ice. Strain into martini glass. Top with Champagne. Garnish with cherry and orange peel.
