The Eagle Rock Cocktail

    Newer Older

    For Mixology Monday XXXIX the theme is amaro -- bitter liqueurs, known as "amaro" in Italy but by many other names in other countries. These are the ones you drink after dinner, not aromatic bitters that you add to cocktails by the dash.

    This is my entry, which will be posted and described at greater length on Monday:

    2 ounces Rittenhouse 100 proof bonded rye whiskey
    1/2 ounce Punt E Mes
    1/2 ounce Amaro Borsci San Marzano
    1 scant barspoon Luxardo Morlacco cherry liqueur (substitute Cherry Heering)
    2-3 goodly dashes Bittermens Xocolatl Mole Bitters

    Combine with ice in a mixing glass and stir for 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a Luxardo cherry.

    I decided to name this one after my neighborhood.

    Little fragrant Tiare, MissxMally, and 1 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Damn you! I was already tinkering with rye, Ramazzotti, Cherry Heering and the mole bitters. Gotta change tacks now...

      I'm pleased to do anything I can to spur your creativity. :)

      The mole bitters work REALLY well with this amaro, by the way.

      Where did you procure those remarkable cocktail picks, sir?
