Speaking of making your own nocino, here’s a cocktail using nocino that I made with DIY Cocktails.
The Black Walnut Manhattan is a traditional Manhattan that uses nocino in place of vermouth. It’s tasty and elegant. Here’s how to make it.
Black Walnut Manhattan
(makes one drink)
1.5 oz bourbon
1 oz nocino
2 dashes bitters
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the bourbon, nocino, and bitters. Stir–don’t shake–the ingredients and strain into a glass. Garnish with a cherry if you desire. Enjoy!
