Becherovka, Blanco tequila, Orange liqueur, Light rum, Amaretto, Lime juice
Shake, strain, rocks, lowball
The original unnamed recipe lacked the lime juice. Without it, the drink is quite sweet.
Dan Chadwick named the cocktail for its creator and added the lime juice.

Works nicely with Clement Creole Shrub for the orange liqueur.

sensational! Fantastic hints of spice and orange, fresh lime juice definitely help to balance the sweet. Almost like having the holidays in a glass...

What a delicious drink! The creator should win a prize or something. (Full disclosure: I'm the creator. The name, however, is Dan's.)

Made with curaçao. (5 stars)
Interesting spice, slight bitter aftertaste (good), rather like a more interesting Margarita. Good balance of orange and almond. 3/2010: Alice & Stefan (5 stars)
