I didn't expect to love this

I didn't expect to love this cocktail as much as I do, since I'm not always a fan of genever (I have the bols barrel-aged). Now, I think I'll keep it around just so I can make this. All of the ingredients merge well and I like the balance, though the maraschino might be a bit dominant for some. The cardamom adds a lot of flavor, so don't skip the garnish. My apple brandy is clear creek.
