Like the Pippin No. 1, don't let modern bartending convention misguide you into stirring this delightful bittersweet aperitivo, please "shake it to wake it", as Wayne Collins memorably used to say. That said, while the shaken version is an aperitivo, the thicker mouthfeel and heavier character of the stirred version are delightful as a nightcap.
