Gabriel Boudier Saffron Gin

I just purchased a bottle of this exotic gin to add to my collection. With tonic it's not doing much for me, and I feel I am wasting it. I purchased it as I once tried it an amazing 'Indian' cocktail which included cardamom and other ingredients I cannot recall. One may have been rose water.

I'm now thinking I have to experiment with some cocktails to get the best of this quirky gin.

Does anyone have a bottle of this? Any ideas?

  1. I'd make a Martini with a mild vermouth, like Dolin, so that the gin stands out.

    If if you think orange would go with it, maybe a Pegu Club?

    1. re: EvergreenDan

      Pegu Club is a fantastic idea:) I was in Sri Lanka recently and drinking them every night. Can't believe I didn't think of it.

      I was already adding an orange slice and orange bitters with the tonic

    2. I had the cocktail that this recipe is based on last night (Nehru at Rendezvous) and it is amazing.
