  • Sherry did not add, and perhaps subtracted. Try subbing with mezcal.
  • What a nice drink! Make three extra for friends and measure ½.
  • Excellent. Made with rye by mistake. Need to try again with Bourbon. 1/8 oz is hard to measure, but a teaspoon is close enough, or make two and use 1/4 oz. — ★★★★★
