  • 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. — ★★★★★

Comments

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.
