<br />Thamyris is one of

<br />Thamyris is one of those lovely drinks that is easy to love and yet you don't know why. There is a multiplicity of flavors that come through, without clashing. For this libation I would recommend a gin that is soft, easy on the juniper. Martin Miller's and Knickerbocker Barrel Gin come to mind. Tanqueray Ten should do well, also because it emphasizes floral and citris flavors; but not Tanqueray, which is heavy on juniper.

To make this cocktail I used Knickerbocker Barrerl Gin and King's Ginger Liqueur, plus the other named ingredients. Thamyris is a great before or after dinner drink--a somewhat heavy in flavor drink, but with the right gin, it will go down like water--only more satisfying. I rated it 4.0.
