Manhattan Cooler

A riff on the 19th century recipe that lead to the contemporary Manhattan. I utilize Pama in place of the original Orange Curacao, and a touch of Fernet Branca in place of the bitters. I find it works beautifully served over ice in a Collins glass garnished with some Marasca cherries.

1 1/2 ounces Pama Liqueur

1 ounce Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth

1 ounce Rittenhouse 1http://1b4 Proof Rye

1/4 ounces Fernet Branca

Shake all ingredients hard with ice and strain into an ice filled Collins glass. Skewer 3 Marasca cherries on a cocktail pick for garnish.
