  • Lovely variation. I'd go even easier on the Islay and maybe go up a touch on the Maraschino lest it get lost. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Reminiscent of the Campari "Martini" but with more complexity. Agree with the comment that the maraschino gets lost, though more might make it too sweet. — ☆☆☆

I'm guessing housemade blood

I'm guessing housemade blood orange bitters, or some other brand, because Stirring's is very mild. You would hardly notice 9 drops, I thinks. This does sound great.
