I'm making this now, using Carpano Antica Forumla because, sadly no Dubonnet Rouge on hand. Very nice. I'm very fond of the word "crux." As a retired rock climber, the crux of a climb is its single most difficult move. Once you're past the crux, you know that you can make it. Fond memories.
I made this today, using Pierre Ferrand 1840 cognac, Dubbonet, and Pierre Ferrand dry Curacao. I poured a little heavy with the cognac, but didn't need to. The end result was on the dry side, very bright, with underlaying complexity from the aromatics in the Dubbonet. Delicious. I will definitely make again! ****
