  • 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. — ★★★
  • Lovely variation. I'd go even easier on the Islay and maybe go up a touch on the Maraschino lest it get lost. — ★★★★

Dan commented on 10/12/2013:

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.

My wife’s favorite drink, ever. Made this for her literally hundreds if not thousands
of times. Upped the Laphroaig to 1/2 oz and swapped 1/2 oz of the Campari for Aperol. Used 2 dashes orange bitters (50/50 Fee bros and Regan’s orange). Add orange twist. Counterintuitively, more maraschino makes it too bitter. The extra Laphroaig smooths out in the mix.
