This is a quintessential Italian cocktail, and it is very European in general. Europeans tend to enjoy vermouth in large quantities, mixing it with sugar and citrus. They don't like their drinks too strong, but richness and complexity are the general rule.

It's a multi-layered drink with citrus nose and orange spice, marzipan sweetness and a dry and herbaceous wine center. Ferrari is an appropriate name for such a designer Italian cocktail. It gets good flavor traction on the tongue and moves fast.

There's a series of car drinks including the [Golden] Cadillac, Monte Carlo, Roles Royce, and Bentley. Check them all out on my blog.    
  • 2 oz. dry vermouth (Mancino used)
  • 1 oz. amaretto (Lazzaroni used)
  • dash orange bitters (homemade bitters used)
Build cocktail in an Old Fashioned glass full of ice. Stir well and twist lemon peel over the glass before dropping it in.
