  • 7/24/20 Beautiful and delicious. Bitters at end look great on froth. Cocktail could be tweaked, but the silky taste helps make up for ingredients being a bit lacking. — ★★★★★

Comments

I really enjoyed this, probably because they are ingredients I tend to use heavily in my own cocktails. Bright flavors with a mild sweetness from the honey. I like using a dash of absinthe bitters and hitting it with some soda water. Actually makes it more of a fizz in my book. 4/5.


Not too sure about this one, not at single person at my party liked it and it took me a couple minutes to put it together. Not my favorite


I really enjoyed this as I used Nolet's for the gin and a dash of lavender bitters. All the floral levels were raised exponentially!
