duck you, sucka!

2 1/4 oz Wild Turkey 101 Rye (Rittenhouse)
1/2 oz Averna
1/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
2 dash Angostura Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass with ice, and garnish with a lemon twist.
My visit to Brick and Mortar and sitting at Nic Mansur's bar reminded me of his Duck You, Sucka! that he created back in his first stint at the bar. He named this Black Manhattan of sorts after the 1971 Sergio Leone classic Spaghetti Western movie, and over the years, it utilized different whiskeys ranging from Wild Turkey Rye to Rittenhouse to Mellow Corn with the collective proof being 100° or 101°. Since the recipe had not ever appeared on the blog, I figured that it was time to change that at my home bar via the recipe on BostonInno that referenced Nic's OnTheBar entry. In the glass, the Duck You, Sucka! shot forth a lemon and nutty cherry bouquet. Next, caramel and cherry on the nose dropped a rye, cherry, and herbal swallow with a clove and allspice finish.
