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 know it was there, I might not have guessed it.

Nice. Good call re Regan's bitters . Used Rittenhouse Rye, which stands up well. Thanks!

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.

Used Fee Bros. bitters and a scant 1/2 syrup. Sweet and orangey, with an interesting finish. (4 stars)
Nice. Strong Cinnamon from the Becherovka. Used 1.5 oz rye, 1/4 oz simple, and added 2 dashes Regans'. (3 stars)
