road to nowhere

1 oz Old Overholt Rye
1 oz Luxardo Amaro Abano
1 oz Luxardo Bitter or Campari (Campari)
4 dash Orange Bitters (Angostura Orange)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a cherry (Woodford).
After my bar shift two Fridays ago, I reached for the Brooklyn Bartender book where I landed upon the Road to Nowhere. This Black Boulevardier of sorts created by Adam Volk at Esme would make good use of my recent addition of Amaro Abano to my liquor shelves. Once prepared, it donated an orange, herbal, and cardamom aroma to the nose. Next, caramel and orange notes on the sip traveled towards rye, bitter orange, gentian, and spice flavors on the swallow.
