  • I got a bottle of this a few months ago. I shook a large measure of gin and a dash of vermouth with 2 crushed cardamom pods, some freshly cracked black pepper, a sprig of coriander and some homemade rose-water sugar syrup. After straining into a martini glass I garnished it with some more fresh coriander. I think it would be lovely served with sugared rose petals.
