Dan commented on 3/31/2015:

Seems hard to believe this needs the simple syrup.

Used Bulleit Rye and regular Angostura bitters. Agreed, doesn't need any simple. I did a tiny dash but would have been fine without. Mad it took me all these years to finally buy Pierre Ferrand, because it's the most delicious orange liqueur I've ever had by far. This recipe blends it in well

EDIT: Decided to try this one again, not realizing tomorrow, 8/13/22, would be one year since the review above. Anyway, made with no sugar this time and it's great. Even almost too sweet, like I'd add more bitters next time or something for acidity. I don't like sweet drinks but I don't imagine even sweet lovers would dislike this without sugar, but a splash isn't gonna hurt it.
