A Black Walnut Manhattan, my favorite Halloween cocktail ever.
Created by cocktail wizard Dave Wondrich (author ofPunch and Imbibe) with a base of strong rye plus port (replacing the usual vermouth), a dash of bitters and spoonful of a black walnut liqueur. Dave sets the whole thing on fire with a small rum-filled lime afloat the top of the drink.
