Good stuff. Same sort of flavor judo as the Jasmine cocktail, but much easier to remember, and a bit more mild and approachable. Sort of the difference between fresh, ruby red grapefruit and older white grapefruit.

Varied this by using Hayman's gin and Lime Juice.

This is a great cocktail!! Reminds me of an Aviation a bit. The ingredients blend wonderfully together, without one overpowering the others. With Genevier, I find it hard to make the ingredient blend into a cocktail, but this does very well!

Nice mix of ingredients.  As with most recipes that call for equal amounts I played with proportions.  This is just a matter of taste of course.  My pick:  1.5 oz Genever; 1 oz Elderflower; 1/2 oz lemon juice; 1/2 oz Aperol
