  • Good, rich. I think an ounce or two of stout might improve it. — ★★★

So why not try something from Beta Cocktails - it's seasonally appropriate, I adore the bitters, and the raw egg's just a bonus. Made with Luxardo's Sangue Morlacco (it was either that or Maurin Quina, and I didn't want to pile on the bitterness).

So, on the obvious side, the bitters drive the drink. and the cherry is a nice counterweight and again, an obvious pair for the chocolatey bitters. Weirdly enough, it's a bit on the simple side, but well thought out. I think round 2 with this will be adding 1/4 oz of Lemon Hart 151 and a Luxardo cherry or 2 garnish (to reinforce the cherry flavor between sips).

Curated to add the pinch of salt. Thanks bza, for pointing this out.
