1 oz Brandy, Metaxa 5 Star
1⁄3 oz Campari
1⁄3 oz Herbal liqueur, Chartreuse
1⁄8 oz Rose water
5 dr Orange cream citrate
1 twst Lime peel

Ice. Stir in ofd, serve with a lime peel twist (optional).


Fat 1/3.
The same ratio works well with Montenegro too.
Maybe even a better match with rose water.
But i prefer the campari power in this one!


To sub Metaxa (aromatized brandy), adding Bénédicte would work.
