1 1/2 oz amaro (Averna)
3/4 oz bourbon (Four Roses Single Barrel)
1 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 oz simple syrup
1 egg white

Garnish: lemon zest and maraschino cherry


Following the centuries old European tradition of making bittersweet liqueurs—called amari in Italian.

Combine all the ingredients except the garnish in a cocktail shaker and dry shake (without ice) for at least 10 seconds to fully incorporate the egg white. Add ice and continue shaking until chilled and strain into a double old-fashioned glass filled with ice. Garnish with the lemon zest and cocktail cherry. Enjoy!
