Comments

This is a drink that is both tangy and sweet. And delicious! For the gin I used Hendrick's Solstice, which is a limited gin. I believe this will be a better drink by using a gin that has some body, either a botanical gin or highly juniper gin. This is because of the sweetness (Aperol and St Germain) and the tanginess from the lemon juice. A gin such as Beefeater's is likely to be swallowed up by the other ingredients. This is an enjoyable drink, either before or after dinner. Or on a hot day. Enjoy!
