Comments

That's a whole lotta rosewater - I'm wondering how it doesn't come across like your grandmother's washed your mouth out with soap. I think that Hendricks might be a good sub for the gin if you can't find Uncle Val's.

Thanks,

Zachary


Hendrick's is definitely a good substitute, though Val's is even more cucumber-intensive. And the rosewater gave me pause as well; I thought maybe she was using a particularly dilute example, but the brand she links to is as intense as any.
