Good balance; of the 3 ingredients you'd expect to be able to taste, you can taste them all equally.  But could use another layer of flavor: herbal or fizzy, maybe?

I feel like gin is the wrong alcohol for this. Also agree with another commenter that it lacks another layer or more depth. For a second drink, I swapped cachaca and added some bitters, and felt that was an improvement.
