  • I did a full tiny lemon, which was way too much. Probably just need half a small. I could tell this is a great drink though.
  • Must try
  • Simple, with cynar — ★★★★★
  • A favorite. I love the way the lemon comes through; less bitter than the search for delicious and I think a bit more compelling

So... this drink. I think that this was the original. It inspired Kirk Estopinal at Cure in New Orleans to come up with the Search for Delicious, which was featured in Beta Cocktails. I would guess that (as Misty Kalkofen put it) a "game of telephone" ensued and thus the Little Giuseppe. All three are significant. Thanks, Zachary
