Moderated to conform to

Moderated to conform to Darcy's recipe, which is not currently on the Rémy Martin site, and to simplify the instructions. Lime juice should be fresh, not Rose's, as lime cordial would make this way too sweet. The current Rémy Martin site lists a variant, the Centaur Spice, which lacks the lime and mint.

Thank you. I am new to the site and still learning how to use it. I had wanted to say use fresh lime juice as well as using homemade simple syrup. I'll get the hang of it. Love the site and I am excited to try new things and hope to have something decent to offer as well.
