  • Refreshing. Maybe try a more spirit forward version next time with 2 oz rye and 1/2 oz falernum/lime
  • As summer draws to a close, this extraordinarily well balanced drink gives great reason to look forward to the next season of the sun. Well done! — ★★★★★

I happen to have the syrup for the ‘Cubed Old Fashioned’ on hand, which married perfectly with this drink. I used lemon juice instead of lime juice, because it is generally what I prefer. A truly successful whiskey-tiki libation.

One of the most balanced cocktails with Fernet that I've had. I'll reduce the Falernum & Lime to .5oz each next time, as suggested, sine I like boozier Tiki cocktails.
