  • Subbed aperol for Campari Was worried about sweetness, so cut aperol and coffee to .5 oz Still sweet.. Lemon around rim was good — ★★★
  • bittersweet!
  • Best solution - Punt e Mes at 0.25 oz and Cherry Heering added at 0.25 oz.
  • I like this one, and the coffee and campari work well together. I do find it to be a little too rich/sweet. I'd make it again, but maybe tinker a little bit to lower the sweetness.
  • Made with Antica. My Kahlua made this initially very syrupy, but the chocolatey bitterness swept in quickly. Really interesting drink. Lemon zest on rim is key. — ★★★★★

Not a huge coffee cocktail guy. I played with this a bit:

2 oz rye
3/4 oz Campari
3/8 oz Coffee liqueur (St George)
3/8 oz dry vermouth
3/8 oz Punt e Mes
1 d mole bitters

I liked this very much.

Looks good. How's the St. George coffee liqueur?

Good balance.  The homemade coffee liqueur I'm using is quite flavorful, and it tends to overwhelm.  I'd use 1/2 ounce of it at most next time I make the drink.

Fantastic drink. The coffee/chocolate with the Campari is a brilliant combination of bitter flavors. I used homemade coffee liqueur and Fee Bros. aztec chocolate bitters.

Made with cocchi de torino and patron cafe xo.  Delightful balance of sweet and bitter.
