The original called for Bittermen's Sweet Chocolate bitters, a one-off bitters made by a measuring error when making their Mole bitters.
This recipe previously listed a variation using rye, regular sweet vermouth, and omitting the bitters. Corrected thanks to a comment by Campus Five.

- Beautiful color. Blood just starting to dry. Very inviting aroma. Spicy, and very old school. Ladies and gentlemen, Do not call. We have a winner! Best showcase for chocolate bitters yet!
- Boy that cherry was good at the end.
- Still says 2oz bourbon. Should be 1.5oz.
- make with 1.5 oz bourbon
- I made with coffee-infused Antica Formula. Nice, Campari comes out strong. I might reduce that to .5 oz. Also, I reduced bourbon to 1.5oz as suggested by other users.
- Works better with Bitter Luxardo, rather than Campari.
- We also make this one with a 2:1 ratio (1.5 oz bourbon), as recommended in the PDT. Garnish with a amarena cherry (Fabbri or Toschi), or a home-brandies version of same.
