Guest Editor: Rachel Mae Furman
We are so excited to welcome our very first Guest Editor, Rachel Mae Furman. Rachel is the National Brand Ambassador for Philadelphia-based organic spirits company, Art In The Age. For this first guest editorial Rachel was tasked with coming up with a cocktail recipe using a product from this month's basket. Read below and see how she used P&H Soda Co's Hibiscus Syrup to create this beautiful cocktail.
How gorgeous is this color for spring? Aside from the beautiful hugh the hibiscus syrup adds to your cocktail, the bright tartness is easy to add to your favorite basic cocktails to make them fancier. For this twist on a classic gin gimlet, I started with a simple gin + lime + simple syrup combo and dressed it up a bit.
First, I started with a Sage garden spirit by the organic spirits line Art in the Age, which is similar to a floral gin. Then I made a rosemary simple syrup simply by infusing some of the herb with a half sugar/water syrup in a mason jar overnight. (Or you could just boil with a few of the rosemary leaves and chill.) I added the fresh lime, some P&H Soda Co Hibiscus Syrup and topped with club soda and an herb bouquet for garnish.
I love using this line of artisanal syrups because you always know they're made with the best ingredients. The combination of the bright tangy hibiscus with the fresh herbs
creates a light and refreshing cocktail perfect for a sunny day.
