Bundt Cake Buddha

An unusually chocolatey (hopefully improved) version of "Fat Like Buddha"
2 oz Jamaican rum (I used Blackwell)
34 oz Dubonnet Rouge
34 oz Cynar
14 oz Bénédictine
14 oz Orange liqueur, Combier L'Original Liqueur D'Orange
1 sli Orange (garnish)
1 twst Orange peel (squeeze for oils, discard)
Instructions
Stir, strain into chilled cocktail glass, squeeze oils, garnish with orange slice.
Notes
Bring out more orange with optional dash of orange bitters
History
Looking for something else to do with Dubonnet Rouge before it turns. The original recipe was too sweet, as usual, so I added some Cynar to tame it and the result was oddly chocolatey-orange, like the classic chocolate-orange bundt cake my mom used to make, so I went with that.
