Black Rat


2 oz. Vilya Spirits Silvertip Gin
3/4 oz Averna Amaro
1/2 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
1.2 oz Cointreau
3 dashes Dutch’s ProhiBitters

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

A filch of the White rat taken from Pioneers of Mixing at Elite Bars: 1903-1933. As a great fan of classic cocktails and rats I figured I had to give this one a try.

I decided to use Cointreau instead of a Curaçao from the original and for the bitters I used Dutch’s ProhiBitters as they go very well with Gin. Then, instead of the Vermouth, I carried it into an easy translation to yet another Blackened Filch Cocktail using Averna instead to make this, The Black Rat.
