Our featured recipes this month were developed by Ryan Maybee to showcase the J. Rieger & Co. Caffe Amaro. Ryan co-owns The Rieger and Manifesto with chef-partner Howard Hanna, was voted the 2015 Top Mixologist of the year by Feast Magazine in KC and helped resurrect the 1880’s-era Kansas City distillery J. Rieger & Co. with Andy Rieger, who is the great-great-great-grandson of the distillery’s original founder, Jacob Rieger. Ryan suggests the Breakfast Negroni or the Caffe Tonic to enjoy.
