From other users
  • No idea why you would serve it without ice.
  • Made it with Beefeater, on the rocks. A bit cough-syrupy, but not nearly as weird as you might expect. Tango 'til They're Sore is probably a preferable variant. — ☆☆☆☆

Lacking Junipero, I made this

Lacking Junipero, I made this with Tanqueray. The gin still shone through, even against the other intense ingredients. Contra Fred at Cocktail Virgin I found that the Maraschino dominated the swallow but the combination of Peychaud's and Punt e Mes canceled out its sweetness somewhat. The anise and cherry notes from the Peychaud's mostly showed up on the long lingering aftertaste. For being a quarter cocktail bitters, this drink isn't very biter at all, probably tamer even than a Negroni. (Peychaud's is sweet enough, and subdued enough in its bitterness, that it could probably function as a slightly bitter anisette, like what Punt e Mes is to other sweet vermouths.) The drink is very tasty, nevertheless, and the bitters give it an attractive color.
