American Dad Cocktail

Happy Father’s Day!
This Sunday, you could make your father an American Dad cocktail from the DIY Cocktails book. A play on the Manhattan, the cocktail has rye, dry vermouth, maraschino liqueur, orange bitters, and Amer–a spiced, fortified wine with more of an orange taste. Here’s the recipe:

    2 oz rye whiskey
    1/2 oz amer
    1/4 oz dry vermouth
    1/4 oz maraschino liqueur
