Not all that great, I used Rittenhouse 100 and instead of Nonino I used Averna. The drink just seems to fall flat close to the finish, maybe the amaro not melding in nicely there. (3 stars)
Identical (except for amount of grenadine) to the "Solstice" cocktail in The PDT Cocktail Book. That recipe calls for .25 oz of grenadine. (3 stars)
A bit strong with Wild Turkey 101. Used Carpano Antica for the Dubbonet and pomegranate molasses. (3 stars)
