Black Friday

1 1/2 oz Four Roses Single Barrel
3/4 oz Rothman & Winter Cherry Liqueur
1/2 oz Averna Amaro
1/4 oz Cynar
1 dash (15 drops) Bitter Truth Allspice Dram

Stir everything with ice and strain into a chilled Cocktail glass. Garnish with a little ground Nutmeg and steel yourself against the consumerist Hell of the holidays.

I wanted to start with something solid, cheap and inoffensive like a Four Roses Bourbon. Give it a bit of forced sweetness with some Cherry Liqueur and then blacken it like the hearts of all the oligarchs profiting on the holidays with a nice bit of Averna. Next it needed a shot of harsh bitterness to reflect dismal dark side of the holidays with some Cynar as people further descend into their deep pits of holiday despair and a finish with a splash of Allspice Dram just for that reminder that this is Xmas and the most wonderful time of the year.
