1 oz Dry Vermouth (Noilly Prat)
1 oz Ramazzotti Amaro
1 dash Orange Bitters (Regan's)
Stir with ice and strain into a coupe glass.
For my post-work drink two Fridays ago, I turned to the stirred whiskey section of the Death & Co. Cocktail Book and found Phil Wards 2008 creation, the Manhattan Transfer. The proportions reminded me of the 3:2:2 Boulevardier in Harry McElhone's 1927 Barflies and Cocktails with Ramazzotti instead of Campari as well as changes in the whiskey and vermouth identities. Moreover, it seemed perfect for my down-and-brown (wait, it's up-and-brown here) drink mood.
