topsy turvy

2 oz Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth (Martini Grand Lusso)
1 oz Lock Stock & Barrel Rye (Rittenhouse Bonded)
1 tsp Caffé Borghetti (Copper & Kings Destillare Café)
1 dash Mole Bitters (Bittermens)

Stir with ice, strain into a Nick & Nora glass, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Tuesdays, I spotted an Inverse Manhattan riff in a recent Chilled Magazine article on rye whiskey drinks to mix this Fall. The recipe was called the Topsy Turvy by Jeremy Oertel of Donna in Brooklyn and Death & Co. in Manhattan, and his tweak on the Inverse Manhattan was to add coffee notes and switch the bitters to chocolate. Once prepared, the drink offered up orange notes and a hint of coffee to the nose. Next, a grape sip flipped into rye and coffee flavors on the swallow with a grape, roast, and chocolate finish.
