History

A sharp, lime forward cocktail tempered slightly by the Combier; the orange flower water gives you a little bit of that "blossom" note--which is really enhanced by the St. Germain

  • Made with Arbor gin. Extremely tart and quite dry. I'd try doubling both elderflower and triple sec. Maybe more orange blossom too! — ★★★★
  • Reduced lime juice to 1/2oz and it was still super dry/ on the sour side so doubled the st germain, definitely better with slightly more st germain than stated. — ★★★
  • Gin- sour, floral
  • Maybe too lime-forward for me? Tempered with a little more elderflower. — ★★★

From the recipe and the comments I knew this was going to be too lime-heavy. I used less lime and more orange liqueur and St. Germane. I used Dry Curaçao so I added a little simple syrup as well. Pretty good but still needs a little more tweaking. Next time I'll try increasing the St. Germaine and decreasing the Curaçao.
