My cocktail of choice is always something in the world of a Manhattan… rye or bourbon being the foundation of the drink. Not only do I love the spiced caramel notes of whiskey, but it always reminds of my dad, whose cocktail of choice as the sun sets, is a whiskey and soda before dinner. This is my version of the classic, playing with the flavors of my favorite kind of chai: adrak-elaichi (ginger-cardamom).



  1. Fill a pitcher one-third full with ice. Add the rye, amaro, ginger liqueur and cardamom bitters. Stir gently for 10 seconds. Add the cherries to the bottom of each coupe glass. Strain the cocktail into prepared coupe glasses. Drop a piece of preserved ginger into each one. Serve.
