Arrogance Mix Lime Sugar

A lime doesn't have to be British to be great; a favorite affordable yet utterly pretty (albeit hypersweet and heavy) Citrus Gourmand is an Italian brand called Arrogance Mix Lime Zucchero (Lime Sugar)...In Lime Sugar, I find an olfactory journey spanning the Mediterranean and the Silk Road region with notes of lime, star anise, rose, hazelnut, sugar and musk. As far as being a Sparkling Cocktail goes, Lime Sugar seems to resemble a Caipirinha, the Brazilian national cocktail, except it isn't sour and has lots more zucchero where that sugar came from. Surprisingly, the dry down is an animalic (like civet), dirty musk as you might find in "L", Tendre Madeleine, Le Labo Labdanum, Jasmin 17 and Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur...
