Notes

Very similar to the Norman Conquest (made with Calvados and sometimes Scotch rather than bourbon, no Bénédictine), and somewhere between a Corpse Reviver No. 1 and a Vieux Carré.

  • MUST TRY
  • A bit nondescript but well put together. Beautiful amber color. Strangely has a little of the "zippy" flavor I associate with maraschino. — ★★★
