From other users
  • A drink that tasted good initially, but seemed to gain complexity and quality as I drunk it. One of the best uses of Smith & Cross I have tasted. — ☆☆☆☆
  • A bit too sweet but I think the same about a Martinez. — ☆☆☆

I have to admit that I'm

I have to admit that I'm frightened of the combination of funky hogo from the Smith & Cross and juniper from the gin. Has anyone tried this? Like beauty and fashion, it's sometimes hard to tell whether a cutting-edge creation is really great ... or really awful.

Hello, Dan. I didn't make

Hello, Dan. I didn't make this drink for the shock effect or to be cutting edge. Just wanted to marry some bold flavours and have fun. It's just a drink. I suggest you give it a go and see what you think. And please report back if you do!

Fear not Dan, this is

Fear not Dan, this is definitely something worth trying. I didn't have any oranges for the garnish, but I don't think it really needs it. This seems like a drink that would feel right at home in Beta Cocktails.

Very good and subtle. 

Very good and subtle. Very Nice use of Smith and cross. Made with Yellow Chartreuse, cinzano, half plymouth and shetland reel gin, Grapefruit peel. Will make again without doubt.

Transatlantic rum 2014 Fidji,

Transatlantic rum 2014 Fidji, Bombay, green izarra, Cocchi torino, peychaud. Very different from the original recipe, sweeter, intense rum forward without too much funk. Subtility disappear. Much more interesting to stick to orignal.
