“How is it?”

“Good!”

The Verdict: Minty

From The Tasting Notes –

Minty and citrus-y, but you could still taste the gin. Which is a good thing, if you like gin. We ended up using a lime, so this drink tasted a tiny bit like a mojito, but without the sugary sweetness. Refreshing, and not scary at all.
