Props go out to Marco Dionysos http://twitter.com/#!/cocktailgeek one of San Francisco's premier mixologists for inventing this drink. That being said, I feel this is almost undrinkable. Too many flavors going on that don't settle well on the pallet.

Ive made cocktails with a lot of the ingredients listed here, but never all together. I'm tempted to try it, despite the bevy of comments to the contrary.
I like the name, and I like the photo (regardless of whether or not it's an accurate depiction of the true cocktail), but it seems like there is a lot going on here flavor-wise. Is it the pineapple syrup? Pineapple has a dominating flavor, but then again...so does Campari.
I can see the Pisco, bitters, and Campari having a clashing effect on the tongue. Sounds great in theory though. Excellent photograph.
I followed the directions minus the gold flakes. It was worth a try but not every hit is a home run.
If the photo is supposed to be of my drink, then you made it wrong. Sorry you didn't like it.
