Surprisingly smooth. Lacking

Surprisingly smooth. Lacking St. George Botanivore gin, I resorted (lol) to St. George's Terroir gin, which is full-flavored, to put it mildly (but I love it!). Everything fell into place from there, including the very last of my Cocchi Americano--but it went to a good cause.

The outcome: I couldn't ask for a more tasteful, enjoyable before dinner (or afternoon) drink. This is one drink that I heartily recommend to gin (and even non-gin) lovers. I rated this libation 4.5.
