This sounds interesting. Have not seen Mirto over here so might take some online investigation. Also no directions but I'm assuming shaken over rocks given the amounts, correct?

Thanks for pointing out the lack of directions. I fixed that. Tremontis is the brand of mirto that I can get here in Boston.

I haven't heard if Mirto. What does it taste like? Could I use Cynar instead?

Amy,

Mirto is a Sardinian liqueur based on myrtle berries. It's sort of bitter-sour and resinous, and in a pinch, I'd try 1/2 black currant liqueur, 1/4 gin, and 1/4 dry red wine to get close.

Thanks,

Zachary

Sounds good. I'll try that, thanks!

Too delicious, low alcohol, quick drinking, Could consider muddling a sprig of rosemary, too. (5 stars)
