1 1/2 oz 100° Rye Whiskey (Rittenhouse Bonded)
1 1/2 oz Sweet Vermouth (Cocchi)
1/2 oz Apple Brandy (Laird's Bonded)
2 dash Angostura Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Fridays ago, I returned to Chad Austin's Everyone Has a F*cking Cocktail Book and spotted the Uptown. This Manhattan riff featured a hint of apple brandy to add to the complexity akin to the Historic Core Cocktail and Fallback. In the glass, the Uptown shared an orange, grape, and apple bouquet to the nose. Next, the vermouth's grape filled the sip, and the swallow showcased rye, apple, herbal, clove and allspice flavors.
