Black Manhattan Cocktail: The most important ingredient in this cocktail is the use of Averna Amero. Averna Amaro is a smooth, rich brown amari with flavors of licorice, cola, sassafras, chocolate and citrus. The Black Manhattan combines Averna with Bourbon and bitters, shaken and strained into a chilled glass. I recommend Early Times Bottled in Bond 100º Bourbon which will stand up to the other ingredients.
Averna is an excellent liqueur with full body and smooth taste, extremely pleasant for every moment of the day. You can drink it or taste it straight, with ice or frozen. It is produced using an ancient recipe made of herbs, which has been passed down from one generation to another since 1868. Each of the most delicate phases of the production of the bitter, all of which take place in the herbalist’s laboratory, are stringently checked in order to guarantee the authenticity of the ingredients and the high quality of the product. This is why Averna is one of the most famous bitters appreciated worldwide.
