  • Made with Broadbent Rainwater Madeira and Dashfire Grapefruit bitters. Interesting combination of citrus, quina, and aged spirit flavors. I drank it up.

Randomly stumbled upon this drink and gave it another whirl and I still like it. I think Rittenhouse is the way to go (not sure why I went with Overholt initially) and I used PX sherry instead of madeira since my bottle of Blandy's is a bit past it's prime. Also skipped the rock and served it down. Not bad.
