I was inspired by Brandon Herrings Game Day and decided to make something with the coke reduction he used. And since I love Averna and bourbon this is how it turned out.
3 pt Bourbon
1.5 pt Averna
2 pt lemon juice
1.5 pt coke reduction (I used Coca Cola)
A few dashes Angostura
Dry shake everything except the last two ingredients. Add ice and shake again until cold. Strain into a old fashioned glass with ice. Garnish with a maraschino cherry and a lemon peel (I forgot it in the picture).
Coke reduction: Boil Coca Cola (or the brand you of coke you prefer) down to about 1/5 of the original content. Then it should be almost like a syrup. Let it cool down and bottle it. Refrigerate.
