  • A bittersweet Amaro like Nonino or Montenegro works well. — ★★★★★
  • tasty!!! — ★★★★★
  • A bit sweet, but a very nice sipper. Agree with others that I would try again with a mild gin like Plymouth or half-and-half. Used Noillly-Prat and Massenez Poire Williams. — ★★★★

Comments

I'll try this next with Plymouth gin ...the Old Tom approached my limit of sweet for this style of cocktail.  It will also be a fun one to experiment with my amari collection. Over all, this one is a contemporary classic in my book.

A bittersweet amaro like Nonino or Montenegro makes this less sweet and bit more balanced.
