If I knew the proportions of the Dandelion Soda I would definitely give it a shot. My bottle of Novasalus hasn't had much to do as of late.

 

Here's what they wrote down for me that night, which I realize is a little different than what some articles online are saying (for instance, no cacao).

 

.75 Cynar

.75 Novasalus

.5 lemon

.5 simple

.5 Jamaican rum (they used Hamilton Jamaican, he said S&C could work but not to use something like Coruba)

 

Short shake, strain into Collins glass with ice, top with soda water. Bracingly bitter in a surprisingly pleasant way.

Excellent! I will check it out. I guess with Novasalus the use of Dandelion & Burdock bitters is a bit redundant? Don't know why I thought that might be in there! Interesting that they did not include cacao which gets mention in a lot of posts about it as you note.

 

For me the latest delivery was the new Barrell brand of Jamaican pot still rum at around 135 proof (just a wee bit of a kick!) and several bottles of Vin Juane wine from Jura just to satisfy a gustatory itch, having never tried it, and to help complete my Jura trilogy (Jura marc, Macvin du Jura and now the Vin Juane). Couldn't wait and dived into a bottle already. Very fino/manzanilla like as expected but I think I like it better than manzanilla. Doesn't seem to last long once opened though.
