Sleek new Southern gem Porchlight is prolific Manhattan restaurateur Danny Meyer's first ever standalone bar. Staying true to its roots, the dark spirit-stocked tavern is plentiful in bourbon, rye and American whiskey, with a list of Southern-accented libations originally curated by GM Michael Shain (Blue Smoke). But head bartender Nicholas Bennett (Booker & Dax) leads new intoxicants, inclusive of the below listed cocktail recipe for a drink you can actually make. Aunt Sally's Cafe is a play on the Vieux Carré, with flavors inspired by the beloved chicory coffee popular in New Orleans.
Aunt Sally's Cafe
1 ounce amaro (such as Meletti, Cynar or Averna)
1 ounce French brandy (such as Louis Royer Cognac)
1 ounce Jamaican rum (such as Appleton Estate)
1/4 ounce coffee liquor (such as Kahlua)
2 dashes of bitters (such as Angostura)
Combine all ingredients in a double rocks glass with one large piece of ice. Stir.
