jackson ward

2 oz Rittenhouse Bonded Rye
3/4 oz Amaro Nardini
1/4 oz Sweet Vermouth (Cocchi)
3 dash Cocktail Kingdom Wormwood Bitters
1 dash Regan's Orange Bitters (Angostura Orange)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Sundays ago, I spied a recipe from Amor y Amargo on the Kindred Cocktails database called the Jackson Ward. The recipe created by Chris Elford was published on the 1MoreForTheRoad blog in 2012. There, Sother Teague described it as a Manhattan "with some lovely dark tobacco flavors and a funky bitterness." Chris named the cocktail after the neighborhood in Richmond, Virginia, known as the "Harlem of the South" for its African-American arts scene. Once prepared, the Jackson Ward gave forth a lemon and herbal aroma. Next, a caramel and grape-driven sip led into rye and bitter herbal flavors on the swallow with a wormwood finish.
