  • Made with tea-infused M&R. Would probably be worth trying with Carpano Antica. — ☆☆☆
  • Solid but not mind-blowing. — ☆☆☆

Ransom, Remy and Carpano

Ransom, Remy and Carpano Antica -- while these great tastes should taste great together, this drink is missing an acid component that a couple of extra shots of bitters can't help.  I have dry Curaçao but I'm not sure that would do the trickk
