  • Strong! Is there a way to lighten it? — ★★★★
  • Good. Lots going on here. A bit sweet though… prob needs the higher proof. 3 w/o it.
  • Made with Makers Cask Strength, Dolin, and Maraska. — ★★★★
  • I feared it would be too sweet but the high octane spirit (I used Evan Williams white label) countered effectively. — ★★★★

The Cocktail Virgin post calls for 1/4 ounce of maraschino. That change made a big difference for me.

Curated to change the 1/2 oz. maraschino to 1/4 per link.
