  • I was in the mood for a Boulevardier, and this made for a very worthy substitute. I would reduce the Creme de Violette to 1/2 oz and up the Cynar and Bourbon a quarter-ounce each to reduce the sweetness. Worth experimenting. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Make with Cynar 70. Very bitter and sweet and not a lot else. Ugly in the glass. — ☆
  • I loved it but has got 3 of my favourite ingredients- put a tad more bourbon in (used Bullitt). Agree this is one to experiment with. Did a float of Barbera half way through and that worked nicely — ☆☆☆☆☆
