  • Pretty sour - doubled the syrup, lowered the lime, still too sour for me. — ★★★

I had a bottle of kirsch of finish and  this was a good choice to experiment with.  I used maurin quina and ginger ale in place of the syrup/soda.  Very refreshing and drinkable but still interesting with the cherry brandy.
