“Here, I’m trying to make a Toronto with Mexican ingredients. Vallet, Mexican fernet, is very dry and astringent, like trying to eat a teaspoon of ground cinnamon. I combine our macadamia nut syrup with macadamia liqueur; this is something I do frequently, as the syrup doesn’t have much aroma, so when used in tandem they complete the circle of macadamia nut.” -Sam Johnson
