For my second drink, I asked bar manager Sam Gabrielli for the Nana's Rocker; Sam mentioned that the recipe was created by bartender John McElroy. Nana's Rocker offered up an apple and grape aroma. Lime and grape flavors filled the sip, and the swallow began with tart apple notes and ended with Amaro Montenegro's herbal and bitter elements. With the apple and spice, the Nana's Rocker was perfect for the autumnal season.
