  • could stand more cynar but perhaps a stronger bourbon or maybe rye — ★★★
  • Small. Made with dry curacao and ruby red juice. Terrific on the nose, but unremarkable taste. — ★★★
  • Very orange-forward, as you might expect. Sort of a not-very-sour whiskey sour. — ★★★★
  • This has become one of my favorite cocktails of all time - it's pleasantly bitter, not too sweet, and has a nice lift from the grapefruit. I have yet to try it with rye, but I imagine it would be very nice. — ★★★★★
