“How is it?”

“It’s…strong. And bitter.”

The Verdict: Strong

This is not a drink for the weak.  It pretty much just tastes like straight liquor. We served this one to visiting guests, one of whom is pretty experienced with cocktails, and even he said it was strong. And he never says that about anything! So…this one may need some ice. Or if you think that most drinks aren’t strong enough, then this is the one for you!
