I think this is one of the

I think this is one of the best drinks I've had in a while.  Remarkable because it perfectly balances the orange flower (for once).  Much better than the Ramos Gin Fizz.  I used pre-made simple syrup to which I added 2 drops and then 2 more in the shaking.  And the basil is also subtle yet apparent.  Also Moody June gin, for the record.  Wow is this good.
