I made this back in 2015 when it appeared in The Essential New York Times Book of Cocktails, and it inspired me in creating the Italian Stallion (I just put the drink in the date base moments ago) in early 2016.

I will definitely have to check out the Italian Stallion. I love these Rome with a View riffs, and it's a great template to play around with.
