  • Better than an Aviation.
  • Very sweet but enough sourness it's not cloying. Lots of floral going on.
  • Don't particularly like the unsubtle color (darker and cloudier than I'd like), but I liked the taste better than expected--probably more than an Aviation. Sour foremost. — ★★★★★
  • The PDT Cocktail Book calls for equal parts ( 0.75 oz ea) of the same four ingredients, and an orange twist as the garnish.

it is suppose to be 3/4 all the way down. It's a corpse reviver no. 2 variation.

Curated this cocktail to conform to the listing in the PDT book. IMHO, the old version is probably not worth keeping, but it's 3:1:1:1. Thanks for the catch.

Despite a pleasing appearance and high expectations, I must conclude this to be one of the least flavorful, albeit balanced, cocktails I've ever had.
