  • Subbed Combier Peche de Vigne for Elderflower — ★★★★★
  • Subtle use of Mescal (still too much for my wife). Floral nose with well balanced Cynar (I went for a light oz.) Very interesting! Accidentally read bsp (Bar Spoon) as tbs, but I liked the lemon.
  • yet to try
  • Subtle but complex. Made mine with chinato vermouth so it has a cola aftertaste, but I love it! This is one of the best I've tasted in a long time. This is why I keep trying new cocktails. This one is worth it. — ★★★★★
  • Mezcal is nice choice - smokey flavor. Maybe too much cynar? Might try with .75 cynar.
  • Love the source drinks and love this too. I feared sweetness but the salt effectively counters it.
