Curated to add the pinch of salt. Thanks bza, for pointing this out.

No problem. The original actually didn't have it, so it wasn't wrong before, just added in the finished Beta book (which in general has a healthy fascination with salted cocktails).

So why not try something from Beta Cocktails - it's seasonally appropriate, I adore the bitters, and the raw egg's just a bonus. Made with Luxardo's Sangue Morlacco (it was either that or Maurin Quina, and I didn't want to pile on the bitterness).

So, on the obvious side, the bitters drive the drink. and the cherry is a nice counterweight and again, an obvious pair for the chocolatey bitters. Weirdly enough, it's a bit on the simple side, but well thought out. I think round 2 with this will be adding 1/4 oz of Lemon Hart 151 and a Luxardo cherry or 2 garnish (to reinforce the cherry flavor between sips).

Thanks,

Zachary

Good, rich. I think an ounce or two of stout might improve it. (3 stars)
