I hate the smell of junipers. I bought some juniper shrubs without realizing the stink they omit... like a herd of cats were hanging out where they are planted. Just sayin'

Tanqeuray is our gin of choice. It has a distinctive flavor. Gin and tonic with lime is my "Go To" warm weather drink. Nothing better.

As far as I'm concerned, tonic is always a mistake. It's bitter and too sweet. Yuck.

look up scandinavian fish or game recipes, i'd think.
That's what I was going to suggest. Danes do some braised beef recipes with crushed juniper berries, as well as game. I can't really imaging it with fish.

Too bad you can't enjoy the Gin CWS I love a good Gin Martini and I find the smell of the juniper berries in gin very refreshing. Maybe some day someone will come into your life who does enjoy Gin and then you will be all set.
