  • A good drink. I used 3/8oz simple and found it sweet enough for me. Not sure I could detect such a small amount of Kirschwasser given its mild flavor and the drink's other strong flavors. — ★★★★

Curated this: Merged the Barbary Lights into this drink - the Cuzco erroneously had lime juice instead of the lemon juice at the cited link. Changed lime juice to lemon juice. Thanks,  Zachary

Nice, but a bit sweet. A bit less simple syrup (1/2 oz.), plus a bit more lemon (3/4 0z.) and I actually upped the kirsch to 1/4 oz.
