Does anyone have any advice on a somewhat floral, lightly flavored, easy on the juniper gin? I tried making a Bee's Knees variant with Beefeater and sweet lemons (citrus limetta), and the gin just overpowered the juice - which is very delicate, totally unlike lemon juice. To get the flavor the sweet lemon juice to be expressed in the cocktail, I had to use a generous 3/4 oz of it, to a scant 1.5 oz of gin, and even then it wasn't as harmonious as I'd like.
Perhaps Bombay Sapphire? Or is there something even lighter?
One possibility is New Amsterdam which is very low on juniper and very citrusy, but not really floral. It's almost closer to a lemon vodka than a gin, but it might work in your drink. I might also suggest Bombay Sapphire East which adds lemongrass and peppercorns to the ten botanicals of the Bombay Sapphire. Magellan is somewhat floral (being flavored with iris pedals), but I don't know if you'd call it "lightly flavored." Quintessential might work, too.
