  • Used LA Favorite and 1/2 oz cinnamon. Tasty — ★★★★
  • Very good daiquiri variation, but two sweet for my taste as written. Death & Co cocktail book calls for 1/2 cinnamon syrup, wich I 'll try next time — ★★★★
  • Made with 3/4 oz of Becherovka + 1/2 oz Velvet Falernum + 1/2 Licor 43 in lieu of cinnamon syrup. Too sweet. Try 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/4 next. Made for an interesting, complex drink, but probably not really like the original. — ★★★★
