  • Tasted like India Pale Ale
  • Made with 4 Roses, Cocchi Americano, and Amere Sauvage. The latter predictably dominated in its way. Not Friend's thing.

Made this with Jim Beam Ghost, which was too harsh at 2 oz. I ended up using 1.5 oz Ghost, 1 oz Dolin Blanc, 0.75 oz Suze,, 0.25 oz Cocchi Americano, 0.25 oz Lillet Blanc, give or take.
