Tarragon Basil Gimlet

August 6, 2010 (part of Cocktail Chronicle)

I love gin so I thought … why not. Just change the rum in Mojito and add gin instead. Well, didn’t work. Gin is aromatic and herby to start with. The additional herbs made it quite overwhelming and not the refreshing summer sipper that I was aiming for.

Lesson learned: When use herbs, go with a relatively neutral base like vodka or rum.
