Named for the Ford model that was only in production for two years in the 1950’s, this cocktail is Shannon Ponche’s (of New York’s Clover Club and Leyenda) riff on a Negroni Sbagliato. This “fall-spiced, low ABV cocktail” gains some nuttiness from savory oloroso and heat from Ancho Reyes, while sweet vermouth and Campari pay homage to its muse.
