I immediately disliked this one on it's own, so I tried to work it into a number of different cocktail recipes. Perhaps I'm just no good at mixing with this one, but I'm willing to have my mind changed if there are any good ideas. At the moment I'm going to NOT recommend this one.
Instead: I would reccomend St. George Gins or The Botanist.
