This muscular cocktail relies on a hit of rich, nutty amontillado to add complexity to rye whiskey.

  • 2 ounces rye whiskey
  • Âľ ounce amontillado Sherry
  • ÂĽ ounce orange liqueur, like Cointreau
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • 1 fat strip of orange peel, for garnish

Combine ingredients (except garnish) over a large chunk of ice in a rocks glass and stir. Twist orange peel over the top of the drink to release oils from the skin. Use the peel to garnish.
