I would replace the simple syrup for a barspoon to 1/4 oz of the cherry syrup.I mixed an Inside Job last evening with Luxardo liqueur. This drink is too sweet for me.
2 oz rye
1/4 oz Luxardo liqueur
1/2 oz simple syrup
dash Absinthe (used Herbsaint)
Does it taste more like brandy or gin?View attachment 1253583
Went for tapas last night and had a couple of these at the bar: as we were leaving I noticed they were selling it retail so I picked one up. It's from Menorca and has been made there since the 18th century. It's unusual in that it is not a grain based distillate, it's from eau-de-vie and is rested in American oak barrels before bottling. Well worth a try.
