  • It's a lot of bitters. Try again with half? — ★★★
  • With the full 3/4 oz bitters (I used a mix of Regan's and Fee's), it's quite bitter! Looks like it will be sweet and fruity but it's rather medicinal. — ★★

Curated: Reverted this to the VS&FC version, which was with 3/4 oz orange bitters. Moved the Hess variation to notes. Updated History and Source.


Tucker commented on 2/16/2015:

Tried both ways. May prefer the original version as the modern take is a bit too sweet.
