It seems extravagant to mix with such an expensive wine, but it is quite sweet; the gin tempers that while still letting all the delicious spice flavors shine through. This recipe is flexible- I thought the wine got a little lost with the stated proportions- I liked it 1:1 with a little extra lime, so adjust to taste.
