Black Manhattan

Toast your good health and a prosperous New Year with this wonderful cocktail. This is based on a drink served at a bar in San Francisco called the "Bourbon & Branch". The original recipe calls for bourbon, but I like the rye whiskey with the dashes of two different bitters. You make the choice!! Averna Amaro is a wonderful Italian liquor made with herbs, roots, and citrus rinds, and a caramel flavor added for sweetness...perfect on its own or just about any cocktail you can throw it in.
