Review:

Spirit-forward and just on the sweet side of bittersweet with cherry and citrus fruitiness. A perfect after-dinner digestif.

History:

Adapted from a drink created in 2003 by Chuck Taggart, the Los Angeles-based New Orleanian cocktail-loving disc jockey behind GumboPages.com. Chuck created this ahead of a visit by English friends John and Fiona, so a gin-based libation seemed appropriate.

I've reduced the ingredients by one-third and moved from being served in a Coupe to a Nick & Nora glass. Chuck's original recipe calls for Torani Amer as a substitute for Amer Picon.
