“Falling Leaves” is from my new favorite cocktail book, Winter Warmers: 60 Cosy Cocktails for Autumn & Winter by Jassy Davis. If you don’t have the Montenegro, try another dark amaro.
1 ½ oz Rye Whiskey
¾ oz Amaro Montenegro Liqueur
½ oz Toasted Fig Syrup
2 dashes Chocolate Bitters
1 Orange Slice
Add rye, amaro, toasted fig syrup, chocolate bitters, and ice to a mixing glass. Stir well, then strain into a lowball glass over fresh ice. Garnish with a slice of orange.
