Amargo-Vallet is a Mexican angostura bark bitter liqueur flavored with additional herbs/spices (cassia, clove, etc.) and macerated in cherries.  I haven't tried it, but for this drink, I'd suggest maybe trying 1 oz Angostura bitters and a quarter ounce each of Cherry Heering and allspice dram (the drier Bitter Truth is probably a better option than the much sweeter St. Elizabeth).
