  • Like the ideas of adding herbaceousness to balance sweetness, will fiddle with it and serve as margarita alterative
  • Great drink. Well balanced. A gimlet++.
  • It's pretty balanced, maybe a little sweet. Very nice. Garnished with rosemary and rubbed it around the rim which added nice element. M.O. would like this one. — ★★★★★
  • A little sweet. Make sure it's ice cold and that class is chilled — ★★★
  • for mint syrup, use some creme de menthe and the rest w/ velvet falernum or simple syrup — ★★★★
  • Threw a sprig in the shaker with simple instead of making mint syrup. Grown-up limeade, super yummy. — ★★★★★
  • More refreshing and smoother than even a Southside, very likable. So easy drinking and low alcohol that it's probably better to increase the pre-shake volume to 4 oz. — ★★★★★
