  • So much better than I expected! Great use of Averna!
  • Not to alcohol forward. Smooth and not aggressive. — ★★★★
  • Instead of Averna: 0.75 oz Amaro Montenegro, 0.5 oz Campari, 0.5 oz Grand Marnier. Reduce elderflower liqueur to 0.75 oz. Increase lemon juice to 1.5 oz. Club soda - ratio about 1/3 soda to 2/3 other ingredients.
  • Surprisingly tasty and well balanced. I don't buy the ice team claim.
  • Made it with Bulldog and muddled a cherry and 3/4 oz. St. Germain. Refreshing but not remarkable. Tasted rather like bottled iced tea with lemon. — ★★★

Very good, light and refreshing but still interesting. I'll try a little less St. Germain next time as this is a bit on the sweet side.

Agreed with Christina - reducing St Germain to 3/4 oz is an improvement, as is muddling the cherries before shaking. I also prefer it with Tanqueray instead of Plymouth. Very good as written but excellent with those changes!

Great drink for non-drinkers. Subbed Averna with Vecchio de Capo and even better.
