Diamond District

Max Green, the head bartender at Amor y Amargo and managing partner at Blue Quarter in New York City, created this reverse Manhattan so guests at a weekly three-cocktail event called Two Weeks Notice could leave happily buzzed, not boozed. “Flipping that vermouth and whiskey ratio can really save you,” he says. Sancho-pepper-infused whiskey adds spice and bright citrus notes that are pulled together by lime bitters.

  • 1 oz Sancho-pepper-infused Wild Turkey 101 rye whiskey*
