From other users
  • A good drink. I used 3/8oz simple and found it sweet enough for me. Not sure I could detect such a small amount of Kirschwasser given its mild flavor and the drink's other strong flavors. — ☆☆☆☆

Tasted before and after

Tasted before and after adding kirschwasser - really does make a difference - rounds out the edges of the drink. Added a dash of angostura too.
