Amor Fati - What does Patchouli have to do with Gin?

Now, I am one gal, out here, shouting into the wind.
Searching, traveling down a path, stumbling through.
I do what I can.
A turn to the left can produce certain results. A turn to the right, others.
Who can judge.

2 oz. of Gin 
1.5 of fresh Grapefruit Juice
1 oz. of sweet Vermouth
2 T. of housemade Grenadine
Shaken together with ice.
Served in a Cocktail glass with an ice ball (courtesy of White's Ice)
Now here is the subtle tweak that can change everything.
Garnished with a generous grapefruit peel and a smacked Patchouli Leaf,
and a light dust of Cinnamon.
These made all the difference.
You decide, you judge. I'll sip.

“Amor Fati – “Love Your Fate”, which is in fact your life.”
Friedrich Nietzsche
