  • The balance is actually right with 1.5 oz. of pineapple juice. And I used 6 muddled fresh cherries instead of the liqueur. This is the best proportion of ingredients for this drink that I've used so far. — ★★★★
  • best ratio yet. — ★★★★
  • Up to 3 oz oj for a weaker drink, but it muddies the color. — ★★★★★

Made this tonight, subbing Maurin Quina for the Cherry Heering. This is quite pleasant, and Tiki-ish. Pineapple's always good for texture, and there's something interesting going on between the pineapple and the Benedictine (which makes three winners in my book - pineapple + Cynar, or Benedictine or green Chartreuse). It's a bit sweetish, and quite easy to drink.

I enjoy the PDT recipe.  Nearly the same, but lime juice down to 0.25 oz and add 0.5 oz grenadine.
