Review:

Rum funkiness and amaro bitterness combine in the bittersweet after-dinner sipper. For a less potent version use cachaça in place of the over-proof rum.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created by Jason E. Clapham at the St. Edward's MCR at Oxford, England. Originally made with Wray & Nephew overproof rum, Jason told us this cocktail is eponymously named for the Black River which runs through the Appleton Estate, where Wray & Nephew is distilled.
