    Cool! I’ll have to reread that book. But recipe’s still too sweet for me. I make it 4:1 instead of 2:1, with 3 oz gin and 3/4 oz lime juice. And even though Rose’s is standard, in the U.S. it now has high fructose corn syrup, which is just silly, so I use Stirrings. :-)

    Good advice! The Mrs. and I got a 6 month subscription to Stirrings as a thank you gift once and we loved their products. Will have to seek out their version!
