From other users
  • Orangey! — ☆☆☆☆
  • Very nice, maybe a little sweet. Cut back on falernum next time, or make sure a full measure of lime juice. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Substituted 1/2 oz orgeat and 1/4 oz homemade vanilla for the falernum. Nice balance. Great use of St. Germain that doesn't make the drink only about the St. Germain. Tasty! — ☆☆☆☆
  • Notes of orange and clove. A touch sweet- might try with 1/2 oz falernum next time. Fun to find a recipe with bourbon, elderflower, and falernum. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Bourbon- sweet, sour
  • A++ Amazingly well balanced. Perfect cocktail. — ☆☆☆☆☆

I've been looking for

I've been looking for something to do with my Velvet Falernum, and this is it! What an incredibly well balanced drink. A perfect intro for those that think they don't like bourbon. I've already tricked a few friends into liking a bourbon with this one.
