Show me some cocktails for a breakup.

Cocktail Colin says:

I found a cocktail called "Break it in easy" that could be fitting for a break up. It includes whiskey, lemon juice, and creme de cassis, and has a rating of 3.8/5. Another option is "Heartbreak Bacardi," a mix of vodka, white rum, mint leaves, and maple syrup, which has a rating of 1.93/5. If you're in the mood for a stronger drink, "Broken Heart" might also be suitable, with vodka, lemon juice, champagne, and red vermouth, although it has a lower rating of 0.55/5.
