Bitter New Yorker

This drink reminds me that I'll have to do a traditional New Yorker soon as a comparison. This drink takes out the citrus juice and grenadine that would make it taste like a sour and turns it bitter with Campari and Amaro Averna. Fiola has a whole page of Amari, bitter Italian liqueurs. Amaro Averna is flavored with roots and spices, but is not as bitter as, say, Fernet Branca. Here's how to make it.
  • 1 1/2 oz. bourbon (Basil Hayden's used)
  • 1/2 oz. Averna 
  • 1/2 oz. Campari
  • dash chocolate bitters
  • cherry
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a highball glass full of fresh ice. Garnish with a cherry.
