  • Reduce Fernet to 0.75 — ★★★★
  • Boosted rye by 1/4oz. The fernet is predictably forward, but I do like how the other ingredients round off its corners a bit. For the fernet-tolerant, a pleasant sipper. — ★★★★
  • hanna fixed this over new years but added some sparkling water and orange slice — ★★★★
  • Surprisingly good. Used Catoctin Creek Roundhouse Rye. I followed the comment direction of reducing the fernet branca - I used .75. — ★★★★
  • Rittenhouse. Campari. Mole. Needs something. Good start. — ★★★★

Hi there,

Thanks for posting this. I made it tonight and enjoyed it. However, I think that I will try it a second time and dial down the Fernet Branca to a 1/2 ounce and see what happens. Thanks again.
