From other users
  • I add 3/4 oz lime and reduce Maraschino to 1/2 oz. This recipe deviates from the original, but as revised is a great drink. It is rather like a spicy, slightly bitter, more interesting Margarita. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Reduced maraschino to 0.5 oz and added 0.75 oz lime juice. — ☆☆☆
  • little too sweet — ☆☆

As the creator of the Hoskins

As the creator of the Hoskins cocktail, may I suggest that if you're going to change the base spirit and the primary modifier you might as well rename it and make it your own. :) Looks good -- I'll give it a try.
