      It's time for another round of "name your favorite mixed drink, and how to make it". Or describe an outlandish, ill-considered, or random mixture and how it turned out.

      Right now, I'm drinking an unnatural experiment made with odd drams to get rid of a couple of near-empties prior to moving.

      2 oz. jack pine gin (freezer cold, local product, could use any botanical gin)
      1 oz. peony baijiu (gift from a friend's visit to China)

      Shake with ice, serve in a coupe glass with a very small amount of ice. It's good enough that I'll try making peony-infused vodka next spring.

      [I don't usually enjoy mixed drinks because so many are too sweet - that's the spouse's domain. But some combinations of herbal, floral, spicy, bitter, or sour flavors work for my taste.]

      Feel free to share what's working for you.
