  • strong rye overwhelms or try a stronger amaro — ★★★★
  • I'd love to try this with Nonino instead of Montenegro.
  • Spicy, reminds me of Pumpernickel, but Laird's added more rawness than I expected.

In Sasha's  Regarding Cocktails, this calls for Nonino rather than Montenegro & is served on a rock.
