  • Love the source drinks and love this too. I feared sweetness but the salt effectively counters it. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Mezcal is nice choice - smokey flavor. Maybe too much cynar? Might try with .75 cynar. — ☆☆☆☆
  • 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. — ☆☆☆☆☆
