In this spirit-forward drink, a take on a rum Manhattan created by Meaghan Dorman, the bar director of Dear Irving in New York City, two Italian sweet vermouths—one rich and lush, one more bitter and nearly amaro-like—combine to great effect.
- Islay scotch, to spritz
- 2 ounces Diplomatico Mantuano rum
- 1/2 ounce Cocchi Torino vermouth
- 1/2 ounce Punt y Mes
- 1 pinch coffee-infused salt
Spritz the scotch into a rocks glass.
Add the remaining ingredients into the glass over one large ice cube and stir gently to combine.
