From other users
  • Used the full 1/2 oz simple and didn't seem too sweet. (I wonder if my cassis is esp. tart.) Accessible like a whiskey sour but more interesting. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • I use a bit of extra cassis and no simple. Fell in love with this cocktail at Clyde Common happy hour in 2015 or so after hiking Forest Park trails. Popular at my house late summer 2017... — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Used just a bit of simple - nice drink — ☆☆☆☆
  • refreshing and interesting, not too difficult to make but also not that complex — ☆☆☆☆
