In the interest of time I used prepared ginger (from jar) about 1/2t. and Roses' Lime juice 1/2 fresh lime. Super delicious! My new fave! I also tried it with vodka and it was good but the gin (Sapphire) does give it more interest. Read More

A nice change of pace from the usual cocktail...a bit tart, a bit spicy. The flavors compliment each other nicely. It doesn't make much (just under 3 oz), so I served it with an ice ball to 'bulk up' the liquid in the glass. Take care when handling the habanero - wearing gloves is best. This might be too tart for some, so if you like things on the sweeter side, use more simple syrup. Read More
