Good stuff. Same sort of flavor judo as the Jasmine cocktail, but much easier to remember, and a bit more mild and approachable. Sort of the difference between fresh, ruby red grapefruit and older white grapefruit.

Varied this by using Hayman's gin and Lime Juice.

This is a great cocktail!! Reminds me of an Aviation a bit. The ingredients blend wonderfully together, without one overpowering the others. With Genevier, I find it hard to make the ingredient blend into a cocktail, but this does very well!
