  • Yes, probably can skip the simple. Mocha-like finish is the best part of this. A lemon twist would be in order here. — ☆☆☆

The simple in this makes no

The simple in this makes no sense to me. In a regular Toronto it is used because there is relatively little sugar in Fernet. But Cynar has lots of sugar. Might be better without added syrup.

I thought the same when I saw the recipe (though it's worth noting that the quantity of simple is cut down here). If I get around to some A/B testing I'll report back!

(This also seems like something I'd stir rather than shake.)
