Liked this one better with ¼ oz cinnamon syrup instead of the split sweetener. Didn't expect the 2 types of bitters to be necessary, but the cinnamon notes in the Bitter Truth make a noticeable difference and the Angostura brings it all together. The two citrus peels are a nice touch, but it's fine with just the orange.
