- Very good. Bitter. Slow drinking. Added 1/2 tsp Menta Branca to simulate the missing mint. Good (but not as good as when made with fresh mint). Doesn't need the syrup.
- Original recipe calls for 1 oz of Cynar. Minty, bitter, and quite delightful, although the rum is completely lost under the rest.
- A touch too much sweetness for me, but not egregiously. Like the minty element and could maybe do with some extra help in that area (add more fresh mint, or add fernet branca or creme de menthe). Bitterness is just right.
- Whoa. Intensely herbacious.
- Cynar/rum- herbal, bitter, minty
- Used Rhum Agricole which had the unfortunate resulting taste of rubber tires.
- Did not get this drink at all.
- Used mint bitters instead of mint (did ~½ dash mint and Angostura each). Excellent drink! Distinctly bitter and herbal. Maybe too sweet? Might slim (or skip?) the syrup next time.
- I'm a big fan of bitter, but to me, the rum gets lost with these proportions. I bumped it up to 1.25 oz, and also increased the demerara syrup to 0.25 oz. Still quite herbal.
- I've had it both ways and I think I slightly prefer shaken. Both ways, though, a phenomenal cocktail.
