It's my kind of drink so I'm biased but I loved it. Got sick of the taste and calories from gin and tonics so gave this a try and really enjoyed it. The photo is of a martini glass version but this really needs to be a bigger highball glass kind of drink because trust me you'll want more! I make something similar with gin a squeeze of bottled key lime juice and diet citrus soda but this was really very good. Thanks for posting Grosbach! Read More

This was a really good drink with far less calories that my typical gin and tonic. It's not as sweet (although I only used a large pinch of sugar) and you really need a good gin - but I enjoyed it. Read More

This was great! I'm not a big fan of gin but this was light & tasty. We'll use it for our 1920s party! Read More
