Rot's Blood Moon Over Manhattan

Had to take my new Blood Moon cocktail for a test spin before tomorrow's eclipse (most likely hidden by clouds).  I think it's a success:

2 ounces (4 tablespoons) rye whiskey

1 ounce (2 tablespoons) Averna

1 dash plum bitters

1 giant pulpy orange juice and Angostura bitters ice ball

And I may have gone a little higher with the ounces...

What's the new Rot name for it?

Rot said...

No clue, mate!

How about:

Red Rotten Moon
Kermie's Blood Bath ( cuz Miss Piggy made him snap )

It sounds perfect, and the plum bitters has definitely piqued my interest here.

As for pouring fat anyone could resist a heavy hand where whiskey is involved is a mystery, and I have difficulty seeing how it could lead to a better drink.

Plum bitters are really unique. Had something at the extinct bar The Blue Comet with plum bitters in it and knew I had to buy some.
