Review:

Given the name, the pressure's on for how this (perhaps not appropriately named) cocktail is presented. Beyond the name, this gin-laced ginger-spice forward cocktail has a citrusy elderflower supporting act.

Adapted from a recipe created at Touché Lounge and Restaurant in Miami, USA.

Alcohol content:

  • 1.2 standard drinks
