  • My falernum overwhelmed here. Next time cut back on sweeteners. Good use of Bols. — ★★★

Comments

Can the recipe be updated? If you refer to the source it calls for 1/2 oz of vanilla syrup and 1/4 oz of falernum. I cut back as per the previous comment to 1/4 and 1/4 and think the original strikes the right balance here. Will make this again soon!
