Dear Fernet

Sweet ? Yes sir. But good. Someone to try to improve ?
1 oz Overproof bourbon (Stagg jr 129 proof)
34 oz Suze
34 oz Sweet vermouth (Lustau)
34 oz Fernet Branca
14 oz Orgeat
Long stir, about a minute, strain in coupe
Sweet yes ! But my palate loved the taste it had. I pretty much like how fernet and suze interact. If someone knows a way to keep the flavor and lower sweetness, please, let me know ! I uped bourbon slowly to 1. 1/3, but fernet and suze vanished.... Maybe dry sherry instead of vermouth ?
