This sleek, sexy and dangerously dark cocktail is every bit as intense as its name. The addition of Averna, an Italian liqueur, gives it a rich and complex flavor.


  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 1 ounce Averna
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
  • Maraschino cherry to garnish


  1. Place a martini glass in the freezer for 5 minutes to chill.
  2. Put all of the ingredients, except for the garnish, into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously to combine for 30 seconds.
  3. Pour the mixture into the prepared glass and garnish with the cherry; serve immediately.
