Comments

Nice. Not spectacular. This would be a good drink to introduce an assertive Old Tom (Ransoms, f'rinstance) to someone who "doesn't like gin". For me, who emphatically does like gin, it seems to play against the strengths of the spirit.

I agree that the gin is lost in this recipe. I bumped up the gin to 1.75 oz and it was much better.
