  • Skip the agave. Replace with mezcal
  • Halved the agave syrup after reading comments about over sweetness. Was perfect! — ★★★★★
  • Nice negroni-like cocktail but probably a bit too sweet. Skimp on the agave?

If you can find it, use Gracias a Dios agave gin as the Old Tom (the mezcal then becomes superfluous).
I've made this with the full amount of syrup and I've been quite happy, but a bit less also works.

I sort of don’t understand shaking this, and I definitely don’t understand double straining it.
