From other users
  • Nice. Strong Cinnamon from the Becherovka. Used 1.5 oz rye, 1/4 oz simple, and added 2 dashes Regans'. — ☆☆☆
  • Used Fee Bros. bitters and a scant 1/2 syrup. Sweet and orangey, with an interesting finish. — ☆☆☆☆
  • I like Dan's suggestions and would try them next time. I didn't think the sweetness was overpowering but the rye has does struggle to stand up to the Becherovka. — ☆☆☆

A nice drink, although I

A nice drink, although I fiddled with it a bit. I used only 1/4 oz simple, but then I tend to like my drinks without detectable sweetness. I upped the rye to 1 1/2 oz to get it to stand up to the Becherovka. I added 2 dashes of Regans' orange bitters, which reinforces the orange notes from the twist and adds significant bitterness (since Becherovka is so mild). I really enjoyed this drink, especially since it highlights an unusual ingredient that is pretty widely available.

Finally tried this one. Yup,

Finally tried this one. Yup, delicious...Made it "Dan's way," except I split the difference on the syrup at around 1/3 oz. Used the new Dickel Rye, which worked great... First drink I've tried using a "tiny" amount of Fernet where the flavors mingled so perfectly that if I didn't <em>know</em> it was there, I might not have guessed it.
