  • Aperol instead of Campari — ★★★★
  • Used 2 drops absinthe and 3/4 lime and Gosling's black. Pretty tasty although not a huge fan of licorice. — ★★★
  • Solid. 4.5. — ★★★★
  • Made with Myer's Dark and El Dorado 8 split. Licorice of absinthe too strong in initial sips but settled down. Really good. — ★★★★

The Death & Co drink calls for Gosling's Black Seal rum rather than an aged rum.

Curated to fix the unit of absinthe. Though source website had it at 1/8 oz., the book cited by the website had it at 1/8 tsp. Thanks @bkemp1984 for the notice.
