Some drinks just look strange on paper. If you’ve mixed even a single Manhattan, you’re familiar with the dark, potent powers of Angostura bitters. Most cocktails take a dash or two, but an entire ounce and a half? That’s what’s called for in this unusual—but oh-so tasty—drink from New York bartender Giuseppe Gonzalez. The orgeat and lemon balance the herbal intensity to give it a richness that carries through to the last sip.


  • 1 1/2 ounces Angostura bitters
  • 1/2 ounce rye whiskey
  • 3/4 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 ounce orgeat
  • Garnish: lemon twist


  1. Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake for 30 seconds.

  2. Strain into a chilled Nick & Nora glass.

  3. Garnish with a lemon twist.
