Mixologist Duggan McDonnell created the Beatnik cocktail for Averna with just three ingredients, but they each contribute to an array of fascinating flavors. This drink offers a hint of sweetness from the tawny port wine, a warm oak from the bourbon, and an herbal and bittersweet undertone from the Averna. The beatnik is an excellent after-dinner drink.

Don't forget to see what other drinks you can make with the ingredients you already have in your bar.
