  • Play with the rum. Tried Appleton. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Made with Pyrat XO and Vida. A kind of tobacco-ey Negroni. Grew on me, as happens with mezcal. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Strong rum notes. Very interesting and different. Maybe more orange zest could be good. — ☆☆☆☆

Love it. Used Santa Teresa

Love it. Used Santa Teresa for the rum and Ramazzotti for amaro. Just what I had on hand. And that's saying something because I'm not a huge Campari fan. For my girlfriend I call this drink "Love to hate or hate to love?" because she loves Campari and amari in general but despises mezcal more than any other alcohol.
