Recipe revised from 1/4 oz to 1/2 oz each of triple sec and apricot liqueur.

Very nice recipe - I used Appleton Extra for the dark rum with 3/4 oz Giffard Abricot (which is amazing, BTW!) and 1/2 oz. Clement Creole Shrubb for the triple sec - close to perfection; I have never been a big fan of the Periodista - until now!

From other users

Excellent with Coruba. (4 stars)
Disappointing made with Smith and Cross. Added 1/4 oz more Cointreau and 1/2 oz Green Chartreuse and still only OK. Try again with a simpler rum, and as written above. (3 stars)
