From other users
  • 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. — ☆☆☆
  • Surprisingly tasty and well balanced. I don't buy the ice team claim. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Averna sour 0.75 St. Germaine — ☆☆☆

Agreed with Christina -

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!
