  • Ancho Reyes up to 0.5 oz works.
  • Well balanced, plenty of nuance. Always cool when creme de cacao doesn't overpower the drink.

Comments

Felt it was a bit too sweet. I used Wild Turkey 101 and liked the banana chocolate taste and boozy aspect of the cocktail. Will up the heat next time and cut the cacao next time, thanks. 


Well balanced and approachable. Excellent cold weather beverage.
