Black Negroni

1 12 oz Gin
1 12 oz Averna
1 12 oz Campari
2 ds Bitters, Angostura
2 ds Orange bitters, Regans' orange bitters
Stir, strain into a coupe or over one large rock.
KC user BritInNoCal posted a similar variation, substituting Averna for the Negroni's sweet vermouth, on the KC Negroni page a day before Liu posted this blog update. Liu named his version for the Black Manhattan. Black Boulevardiers, Contessas, etc will probably work as well. A Black Nolita is probably excellent.

Agreed... I shrunk it down to 1 oz each when I made it.

I agree that it's not as magical as a true Negroni, but then few things are.
