<br />The "Churchgoer" is one

<br />The "Churchgoer" is one of those memorable drinks: a little sweet, just a tad bitter, and each ingredient knows its place and blends with all of the others. To the best of my recollection, this drink is only the the second one that I rated unhesitantly at 5.0, since joining KindredCocktails oh so many cocktails ago (and about six months ago).

For my taste, I can make no suggestion that might improve it, because the "Churchgoer" is nothing short of spectacular. It was posted 15 months ago, and I am only the second person to rate this drink, and the first to comment on it. The "Churchgoer" deserves a better fate. Its ingredients are readily available, and you can use The Botanist gin if you don't have St. George Terrior gin. If you are a gin lover, you'll find both deserve to be your bar. If you are not a gin lover, but enjoy a good gin drink, you'll appreciate the "Churchgoer." If you believe there's no such thing as a good gin cocktail, I think the "Churchgoer" will change your mind. This is one cocktail that deserves to be tried at least once in your lifetime.

Lovely! and so much more

Lovely! and so much more palatable than the classic dry martini. Didn't have Genever but subbed St Georges Dry Rye gin which has a not entirely dissimilar flavour profile, a little more botanical and a little less yeasty/ bread-like as genever but the combination of all the ingredients strangely highlights the bready tone. Makes a beautiful pale gold drink.
