For football season, we had a bartender from each NFL team's hometown provide the perfect cocktail to represent their team.

“This cocktail is basically just whiskey and bitters because Cleveland Browns fans are just that—drunk and bitter,” says bartender Dave Taha of The Greenhouse Tavern. The Amaro Nonino Quintessentia lends a touch of sweetness, which acts as the hope we fans have for a perennially doomed team. No fanfare, just the basics, on ice, in a glass.”


  • 2 1/2 ounces Old Overholt rye whiskey
  • 1/3 ounce Amaro Nonino Quintessentia
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
  • 1 dash orange bitters


  1. Add all of the ingredients into a rocks glass filled with ice and stir to combine.
