Adapted from a recipe created circa 2009 by Toby Maloney at his Violet Hour in Chicago, USA and featured in his 2022 book The Bartender's Manifesto
Originally made with 45ml Campari, 30ml Dolin Blanc Vermouth de Chambery, 15ml Junipero (Navy-strength gin), 7.5ml Cynar, 7.5ml Fernet Branca, and one dash of each Regan's Orange and Angostura Orange bitters.
This cocktail is named after Eeyore in Winnie the Pooh, which Toby is quoted as saying is "the most bitter character in literature" so appropriate for a bittersweet cocktail.
