Had Averna Amaro liqueur in a drink the other night, and we just had to pick up a bottle. It's a sweet bitters, if that makes any sense. Kind of like an Unicum Zwack, but with a nice sweet touch.

So tonight we have...

1 part Averna
1 part Belle de Brillet pear cognac
2 parts Warwick Distillery Apple Bourbon (very dry)
2 parts OJ
3 frozen pitted Bing cherries
1 part ginger ale
2 dashes of bitters
on the rocks

Without the OJ it's kind of *cough* strong, but that little bit of juice really moderates it. With a bit more ginger ale, it finishes sharp and spicy, but without it, it is a bit cloying in texture - soda water or sparkling water might be better, to be honest, and would let it be lightened up a bit by adding more.

But really, this is... um... holy cow. We just need to come up with a name for it. Any ideas?

Edit: You know, on second thought, and second quaff, I think I'd replace the OJ and ginger ale with soda water. The juice is swamping the apple and pear liqueurs, and they really deserve to shine through.

SQUEE!

Is there a better example of the pinnacle of civilization?!?
