Blood Eagle

1 12 oz Aquavit, Krogstad
1 oz Sherry, Lustau East India Solera
12 oz Amaro Nardini
12 oz Campari
1 bsp Fernet Vallet
1 twst Orange peel (swath)
1 twst Grapefruit peel (swath)
Instructions
Stir, strain into old fashioned glass with a large cube or sphere. Garnish with peel swaths, arranged in a V shape like wings.
Notes
Recipe is tuned for Krogstad Aquavit, which isn't nearly as caraway heavy as some other aquavit I've had. If using another brand, you may want to split the aquavit with vodka.
History
Riff on the "Host Body" posted here at KC. Loved the combo of East India Sherry, Nardini & Campari and wanted to use it in a more savory drink.

Simplified as just (Aalborg) Aquavit, Sherry, and (1oz) Campari with dash Ramazzotti and blood orange slice, and found very enjoyable.
