Out of the Blue
The original Fogcutter created by Trader Vic in the 1940s relied on a split base of rum, gin, and brandy with a cream sherry float. This riff off a Fogcutter uses a blueberry infused Pisco in place of European brandy and is made slightly bitter with the addition of Averna Amaro.

.75 oz Dark Rum, such as the Plantation Dark or O.F.T.D
.75 oz Gin, such as Hayman's London Dry
.5 oz Averna Amaro
.5 oz Delicate Cream Sherry
1 oz Lemon Juice
.75 oz Orgeat
.75 oz Fresh Orange Juice
