14 oz Gin (scant)
14 oz Triple sec, Cointreau (scant)
Shake and strain into cocktail glass. Add chunk of pineapple
Converted from wonky percentages - Each 3/4 - 1/4 pairing should add up to 3/4 oz. Garnish should either be a wheel or spear of pineapple.

Meh. Used Blume Marillen and

Meh. Used Blume Marillen and von Oosten, two fairly pricey ingredients. Not worth the ingredient cost. I question whether 1 tsp of gin is detectable. An okay drink, but I wouldn't return to it.
