About this Cocktail

Not sure where this cocktail originated, but we put our own spin on it with a blend of bitters and a Black Strap float.

Ingredients:
  • 2 oz Rittenhouse Bonded Rye Whiskey
  • .75 oz Averna
  • 2 dashes Black Bitters
  • .25 oz Cruzan Black Strap Rum (float)
Preparation:

Stir. Strain. Rocks glass. Big rock. Float Black Strap Rum.

Note: Black Bitters are the Whistler's house blend of Angostura, Fee Bros. Orange, and Scrappy's Chocolate Bitters.

    Billy what are the ratios on black bitters? Equal parts?

    This has become one of my favorite go to drinks. I also like substituting a higher proof bourbon, like Heaven Hill 6 Year Bottled in Bond or Wild Turkey 101.
