The Kerouac

A Negroni-like drink inspired by Jack Kerouac's two favorite spirits
1 12 oz Rye
1 oz Tawny port, Taylor (Taylor Fladgate 10 year)
12 oz Amaro Nonino
Stir, strain, pour over rocks
I was playing around with a 3-2-1 ratio Negroni type combination and thought "What would Kerouac mix up?" Maybe the amaro Nonino would be too fancy for him (and too modern) but I thought it was mellow enough to work well with port and rye. I chose rye, but might want to try other whiskeys. Kerouac preferred Johnnie Walker Red...
