It's not as sweet as it looks on the page. The honey, elderflower, and Yvette are present in small amounts that together add up to balance the amount of sour (lemon). The dry champagne, the high proof of the Tanqueray, and the slight sourness of the berries help to offset the sweet as well. It's still a pleasantly sweet cocktail, to be sure--only fitting for Valentine's Day!--just not tooth-achingly so.
But I'd definitely be interested to know what you think if you try it!
