I prefer this ratios: 2oz

I prefer this ratios: 2oz silver light rum, 3/4 lime,  1/4 rich simple. Shaken with mint and top with 3/4 oz  dry champagne and 1 dash ango.

1oz simple seems too much as well as the recipe in punchdrink calling for 2oz champagne.

I really think the drink is interesting if it remains dry.
