  • Used 3/4 oz lemon juice. Easy sipper; would likely appeal to a wide range of people. — ★★★★★
  • I think this would be better with fresh lemon juice (used bottled) and a different Falernum. Mine is Devil's Own. Not great. Got potential.
  • Wow. Crazy good and complex.
  • A large, boozy drink. Flexible so you can add more gin and/or tequila and/or rum to suit your taste. 0.75 oz lemon juice will suffice for most people.

I was excited about this drink, despite what I suspected was an editing mistake, the 1 1/4 oz. of lemon juice.  But I made it as directed.  While I concede that this could be a very good concept, it is indeed ruined by the excess of lemon.  It overpowers all other the flavors and is distractingly tart.  I hold out hope and would try again with 3/4 oz. of lemon juice, which is what my intuition said all along.

Curated this, after an email exchange with the OP. Reduced lemon to 1 oz, with a note that 3/4 would be fine depending on personal preference. Thanks, Zachary

Ran out of Grand Marnier, but Cointreau proved to be satisfactory.
