Dan commented on 1/12/2012:

This sounds really good. I like the idea of the massive blast of molasses from the Cruzan Blackstrap with the menthol of the Fernet Branca. I definitely want to try this soon, perhaps starting with a scant portion of honey.

This sounds interesting - rum-lime-Fernet makes me think of the rum-lime-Chartreuse combination that I love so much. I'm trying to think about the Luxardo in there - how does it work other than the sweetness?
