I'm making this now, using Carpano Antica Forumla because, sadly no Dubonnet Rouge on hand. Very nice. I'm very fond of the word "crux." As a retired rock climber, the crux of a climb is its single most difficult move. Once you're past the crux, you know that you can make it. Fond memories.

Delicious cocktail. Great

Delicious cocktail. Great sidecar alternative, particularly if looking for something less cognac forward.
