About this Cocktail

Not sure where this cocktail originated, but we put our own spin on it with a blend of bitters and a Black Strap float.

  • 2 oz Rittenhouse Bonded Rye Whiskey
  • .75 oz Averna
  • 2 dashes Black Bitters
  • .25 oz Cruzan Black Strap Rum (float)

Stir. Strain. Rocks glass. Big rock. Float Black Strap Rum.

Note: Black Bitters are the Whistler's house blend of Angostura, Fee Bros. Orange, and Scrappy's Chocolate Bitters.

    Billy what are the ratios on black bitters? Equal parts?
  • Tom Lyberg
    This has become one of my favorite go to drinks. I also like substituting a higher proof bourbon, like Heaven Hill 6 Year Bottled in Bond or Wild Turkey 101.
