  • Subbed ginger liqueur (New Deal) for syrup & added 1/8 oz maple syrup, scaled lemon back to a fat half.
  • Very nice and ginger forward — ★★★★★
  • Easy drinking. Summery. Might go a touch lighter with the lemon juice next time. Used rosemary rather than mint and wasn't sorry.
  • A lot going on, almost to the point of being overdone. Nonetheless, a tasty drink.
  • Made with standard proof bourbon, Cointreau, mint. Lots of different flavors; perhaps the ginger syrup was a touch outspoken. Would be worth returning to with rosemary I think. — ★★★★
