HallA commented on 11/25/2022:

I made a variant from here https://imbibemagazine.com/recipe/new-pal-cocktail/ with turned down campari and vermouth and switched the amounts of absinthe and Peychaud. Liked it with that spec and generally consistent with boulevardier preferences suspect that's the spec I'd favor.. With those proportions it's a four star drink, not sure with the 1:1:1.
