  • Extraordinarily dry. I'd double the blackberry liqueur. (I used a homemade blackberry liqueur so that might have been the issue.)

mako commented on 4/03/2021:

This drink is very dry and quite small. The Central Park is a very similar, and IMHO better, version of this drink. It's also from Portland so perhaps there's a relationship between these? The notes suggests that there are variations discussed at the link but the link itself seems to have bitrot away.

And these days, very expensive. Updated the link (the blog moved) Thanks,  Zachary
