From other users
  • Like a grown-up whiskey sour. 1/4 oz agave would be plenty, unless you like it sweet. Amaro sinks to bottom; may be better incorporated, rather than floated. Garnish is lovely. Used Wathen's bourbon. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Darker, but light cocktail. Great for a summer evening. — ☆☆☆☆
  • less avave. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Very good! In between a paper plane and a whiskey sour — ☆☆☆☆

Subbed out a few things - got

Subbed out a few things - got good results: used B&B rather than Benedictine and Agave. Swapped the Whiskey Bitters for Grapefruit bitters, and used Averna as the amaro of choice. Sipping delight.

This is a brilliant drink,

This is a brilliant drink, 5/5 for me. I followed the previous suggestions and incorporated the CioCiaro into the drink and used .25 oz simple syrup since I had no agave. My lemon slices were pretty thick, and I couldn't resist adding a couple dashes of rhubarb bitters. I used Bulleit bourbon.
