I love a cocktail made with a good orgeat, the classic almond syrup that’s essential to a Mai Tai, the Japanese Cocktail, and a staple of any tiki bar.
A gin and tonic is a fine drink. It’s tough to beat on a summer day, with its effervescence and its botanical fragrance and its hit of citrus.
This ginger syrup is a favorite for me. It makes the best ginger ale. It’s sweet and spicy and complex.
I love elderflowers. When I saw that Seedling Farm was selling them at the Green City Market last week, I immediately bought a flat of them.
