1 oz Rittenhouse Bonded Rye Whiskey
3/4 oz Cocchi Sweet Vermouth (Martini Grand Lusso)
1/2 oz Bonal Gentiane-Quina
Scant 1/2 oz Cynar
1 tsp Luxardo Maraschino
1 dash Angostura Bitters
1 dash Orange Bitters (Regan's)

Stir with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with 3 cherries on a pick (omit).

Two Wednesdays prior, I reopened the NoMad Cocktail Book and became intrigued by the Broadway subtitled, "A bitter Manhattan variation named after the famous street where NoMad NYC is located." The recipe was created by Nathan O'Neill, and the combination made me think of the Maloney No. 2 and the Bensonhurst.
The Broadway paraded to the nose with nutty cherry and grape aromas. Next, grape and caramel on the sip crossed into rye, nutty cherry, and herbal flavors on the swallow.
