I made this cocktail up as a variation of "black manhattans" that I've been playing with for years. I love amaro and have been experimenting with it a lot. The Don Ciccio ones are my favorites, but Averno is good also. There are even German bitters which are very similar (Boonekamp is a favorite from Bavaria), but they don't call them amaro in Germany. So, amaro was the basis of the drink... with chocolate and mole bitters to give more richness and dark depth.
2 oz Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye
½ oz Amaro (try one from Don Ciccio, Averno, Ramazotti, Cynar or your favorite)
½ oz Carpano Antica sweet vermouth
2-3 dashes of Mole / Aztec or Chocolate bitters
Luxardo cherry garnish
Combine all over ice, stir, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.
