  • maybe split gin between ransom and another — ☆☆☆
  • A bit sweet, but a very nice sipper. Agree with others that I would try again with a mild gin like Plymouth or half-and-half. Used Noillly-Prat and Massenez Poire Williams. — ☆☆☆☆
  • tasty!!! — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • A bittersweet Amaro like Nonino or Montenegro works well. — ☆☆☆☆☆
