Use less blackberry next time - half as much — ★★★
A better version of the Old Portland Cocktail. — ★★★★
I made with 1/4 oz of Cassis, which was excellent. — ★★★★★
I really liked this. I subbed Averna for the amaro. My second attempt I muddled 2 raspberries and 1/4 slice of orange and it gave it a great sparkle. Also tried with local Campari like Amaro, but too bitter. — ★★★★★
I used a homemade blackberry liqueur and the flavors were quite good. One thing to note - this drink is supposed to be served in a rocks glass over a single large ice cube. The directions, as written, suggest it's supposed to be served up, which is incorrect.
