First sip surprised me, I was

First sip surprised me, I was expecting an exotic cough syrpu...I'd try it next time without the additional simple syrup.  


Also, it makes a good base for a shot of gin...I used Sapphire East, re-stirred the whole shootin' match with ice, then put it into my antique up glass.  Less sweet, more booze.
