  • Actually on the sweeter side with a lot of herbal/pine-like overtones. I'd consider subbing Campari for Aperol to bring down sweetness, or use 3/4 oz. of the 3 most prominent ingredients.

How's that Calisaya? I think K&L called it Grand Marnier meets Nonino, which sounds ok but a little sweet.

I haven't tried it, though I'm curious to; the blog linked mentions it's similar in sweetness and texture to Gran Classico, though with a lingering syrupy residue on the tongue. As you mention, Driscoll at K&L's a fan.
