  • Fine alternative to a martini or vesper. — ☆☆☆
  • My new go-to Martini alternative Another great variant- swap out the orange bitters with 1/2 tsp rose water for the White Lighter (in honor of the incredible Typhoon Album) — ☆☆☆☆☆

There are few cocktails that

There are few cocktails that I rate 4.5 or 5: a Negroni or Manhattan are a few. Well, with this cocktail, I have to add one more. Truth be told, I was torn between rating White Light as 4.5 or 5.0. If I could use my own rating scale, I would rate it "Damn Good."

By the way, the gin I used is definitely topshelf. It is Tanqueray's Bloomsburg, which is labelled as "Limited Edition." If you're a gin drinker and can get this product, get it. You won't go wrong!
