The Nightcap

Food&Wine published a nightcap recipe entitled, simply, The Nightcap. We like it a lot – but you have to be sure to use a great quality Italian sweet vermouth.

  • 2 ounces Cocchi Vermouth di Torino or other Italian sweet vermouth
  • 1/2 ounce rye whiskey
  • Dash of orange bitters
  • Ice
  • 1 orange twist, flamed, for garnish (flaming optional)

In a chilled rocks glass, combine the vermouth, rye and bitters. Fill the glass with iceĀ  – preferably one large cube – and stir well. Flame the twist over the drink and drop it in.
