  • reduce heering to 1/2, all plum bitters no cherry bitter
  • Very cherry, but great if that's what you're looking for. Gilroy variation without any vermouth.

a tad sweet/heavy for me as is, would up the lemon juice I think if I make again

Definitely on the sweet side but I quite liked it; subbed 1 dash Cherry and 1 dash Plum bitters, would probably go with all plum next time. Wouldn't increase the lemon myself as it's plenty acidic enough, reduce the heering to a 1/2 or 1/4 oz.
