tre amari fizz

3/4 oz Averna
3/4 oz Fernet Branca
3/4 oz Cynar
1/4 oz Demerara Syrup
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
2 oz Heavy Cream
1 Egg White
4 drop Orange Blossom Water

Shake once without ice and once with ice, strain into a Collins glass with 2 oz ginger beer, garnish with an orange twist, and add a straw.
Two Saturday nights ago, one of the blog readers from San Francisco was back in Boston and visiting Loyal Nine. One of his tablemates approached the bar and asked for a drink to end out the West Coast visitor's evening. Instead of a Flip, I decided to go in the style of a New Orleans (a/k/a Ramos) Fizz using three different amari akin to my single amaro Fizz, the Fratelli Fizz. For the trio, I selected Fernet, Averna, and Cynar and instead of soda water, I opted for ginger beer akin to the Fernet Buck and Cynar Buck. The end result was so good, that the original requester of the drink got envious and asked if he could have one as well (and that second one is the the one in the photo above).
