The Cocktail: Field of Dreams

With October baseball heating up, what better time to try this version of a Summer Manhattan, made with Whistle Pig Rye, Amaro Foro and Cocchi Americano.

The highlight of this cocktail is Whistle Pig Rye, the hard-to-find, award-winning 100% rye whiskey created by Maker's Mark's former master distiller, Dave Pickerell. Distilled in Canada then aged in Vermont, the flavor bleeds hints of mint, clove, and nutmeg, with a sweet balance of honeyed vanilla and caramel. 

Imported from Florence, the Foro Amaro Liqueur delivers a blend of citrus fruits and dried herbs that aren't too sweet, nor too bitter on the palate.

Cocchi Aperitivo Americano is an Italian aperitif wine which debuted in 1891, and over the past few years, has made a name for itself in trendy craft-cocktail bars around the U.S. It has a crisp and citrusy flavors with a delicate bitter edge.

With a bold, spicy distinctive finish, the Field of Dreams is the ultimate cocktail to sip on as you watch your team head into the post season.
