“I collected this easy recipe for my friend Gene long ago. I personally am not fond of gin, but he is, so I put this recipe in my Wednesday, January 30th, 2002 LJ entry. It appears, from searching online, that I got the recipe from the UK Bafferts Gin Food Recipes website. The gin and juniper could be easily swapped with sherry and some other herb or spice, too, for a completely different taste.”
