  • Fantastically balanced and simple. Sweet, aromatic, floral and bright. I used Landy Connac VS, donlin rouge, martini dry, and cointreau, — ★★★★★
  • Yeah this is a 5. Straight up, simple, grown up cocktail that has no pretensions and is hard to beat. — ★★★★★
  • Related to the Black Feather and the Chanticleer as cocktails combining vermouth and triple sec. Also similar to Bombay Cocktail (No.2) with bitters instead of Absinthe. — ★★★★

This is also good with gin in place of brandy. I suppose that needs a new name.
