  • Used smoked cinnamon; reduced to 1/2 oz. Reduce to 1/4 oz on next round.
  • Has potential, but I'll reduce the cinnamon syrup next time. Candy sweet as written. Also might reduce total amount. A very voluminous drink.
  • Used campari instead of aperol. not sorry. — ★★★★★
  • Bloody well amazing, this one.

Very nice taste but far too sweet.

No punt e mes at home so used cinzano.

Maybe using higher proof bourbon + lowering syrup to 1/2  oz + 3/4 oz aperol...

I had Cocchi Vermouth di Torino, so I upped the bitters each by a dash. Used the Barrel Aged bitters, which worked well.
