  • Used rye, and Luxardo that had had my cherries in it for about 10 months.
  • Agree w/ others that only 1/4 oz lime juice needed. Grapefruit bitters are good substitution, as someone suggested, as are Dashfire Ancient Chinese Secret.
  • Use rye for smoother taste. Cut lime juice to 1/4 oz Triple ginger beer Use grapefruit bitters

Pretty good, but not quite there for me; I think the lime juice and ginger beer are bringing me down. Lemon juice instead, no ginger beer? 3.8/5.
