  • Decadent and rich. Drink by a fire. IMHO, much better than most 4★ drinks on this site. (Made with Skip Rock's Nocino and normal chocolate bitters.) — ☆☆☆☆
  • Try again with nocino.

The original recipe calls for

The original recipe calls for walnut liqueur, specifically Toschi. I used Nocello in this as specified in this recipe, which is a walnut and hazelnut liqueur - the hazelnut was very dominant and did not make for a good drink. Should be changed from Nocello to Nocino to reflect a true walnut liqueur.
