From other users
  • Smoky but not overwhelming. Complex, viscous texture. An excellent way to return from a Cozumel vacation. — ☆☆☆☆
  • For sophisticated palates (smoke- and bitter-tolerant), this is a lovely drink with a nice finish. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Scale back the chocolate bitters a bit. — ☆☆☆
  • Nice use of Ramazotti to compliment the chocolate bitters. Does work best with Aztec Chocolate as the heat kicks it up a notch. — ☆☆☆☆

Nice use of Ramazotti to compliment the chocolate. Works well with Fee Bros. Aztec Chocolate as the heat kicks it up a notch.

This is quite possibly my favorite modern cocktail creation. It has so many perfectly complementary flavors. It's like a great book or movie where every time I experience it, I can pick out something new that I enjoy.
