  • Hard to go too wrong with a bunch of solid ingredients. Sweeter than I expected. — ★★★★
  • Used Peychaud's bitter instead and equal parts lemon and grapefruit juice — ★★★
  • Made with Finger Lakes Distilling high-rye Bourbon and Fee WBA bittters. Very good, slightly bitter, complex, and interesting. Use regular Angostura next time to prevent the bitters from dominating. — ★★★★★

herbal, mildly bitter, and bright- like this a lot. Though the I didn't know what a dash of orange and grapefruit meant (bitters?), I assume a typo- so I had to skip that part.

Apologies for the inaccuracies, now corrected. I'm not sure what Deep Elum's house aromatic bitters are like, but I think regular Angostura or similar would work well. Attribution corrected. Gratitude to Cocktail Virgin Slut's excellent blog.

Re bitters, I dunno what the original calls for, but I actually thought this needed more verve than it has so I went generous with Bittercube Bolivar.
