Whiskey drinkers will delight in this modern classic.

Sam Ross of New York’s Attaboy created this recipe as “the love child of a Negroni and a Manhattan,” sort of an extra-bitter Boulevardier. Author Adrienne Stillman suggests also trying the Right Hand, made with rum instead of bourbon, which was created by Sam’s business partner Michael McIlroy.


  • 1½ oz. bourbon
  • ¾ oz. Campari
  • ¾ oz. sweet vermouth
  • 2 dashes chocolate bitters
  • Tools:mixing glass, barspoon
  • Glass:coupe
  • Garnish:brandied cherry


Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing glass with ice, then stir for 25–30 seconds, or until well chilled. Strain into a coupe. Garnish.
