  • Used La Favorite Blanc. Its wet-grass elements can sometimes be domineering, but here they worked really well. The maraschino was in harmony, too, which isn't always easy to achieve. Nice!
  • Rum makes the maraschino really come out
  • Outstanding — ★★★★★
  • Super yummy. The seond time I made this, I added a few drops of homemade mole bitters.
  • Last word variation. Great with Rhum JM. A bit more subdued with Clement VSOP. — ★★★★★

This rummy variation is so good. I used the Clement VSOP ( I am no rum expert, but really love this stuff) . Seems the chartreuse/maraschino/citrus combo is good to a variety of spirits.
