  • Tasty and pleasantly sharp. The garnish of orange peel is really key to balance the strong alcohol in my opinion.
  • Used Flor de Cana. Worked well. With dark rum, may want a squeeze of lemon to cut the caramel. Subbing in Punt e Mes for the sweet vermouth did indeed add some Christmas spice. Maybe a half barspoon of Allspice?
  • maybe try again with the Caprano Antica vermouth. Might make a difference.

Just mixed this with 1/2 oz Cocchi and 1/4 oz Punt e Mes in place of the 3/4 oz Carpano and it smacked of Christmas with the extra spice. Very delightful. 4.5.
