For 1 Serving(s)


  • 1/2 floz grade B maple syrup

The Pre-June 23rd* Directions

  1. For the raspberry syrup: Slowly simmer (as low as possible) equal parts, by weight, of fresh raspberries, granulated white sugar and water until the berries are very tender—about 15–20 minutes.
  2. Strain the mixture very, very gently and slowly through a fine mesh strainer into a lidded jar (avoid pushing or smashing the berries through the strainer).
  3. Store in the fridge until ready to use.
  4. For the drink: Combine everything with crushed ice in a Collins glass and swizzle.
  5. Top with aromatic bitters splash and a mint sprig.
