When the weather changes, we reach for seasonal fruits, herbs, and warming spices.
This alcohol-free collins is anchored by our Malawi Iced
, a wonderful N/A substitute. In addition to the mainstay of lemon juice, this drink leans on the aroma of seasonal pears, warming ginger, and piney rosemary. A cinnamon stick would also be great too if you don't have rosemary laying around.
- 2 oz Malawi Iced
- 1.5 oz pear juice
- 1 oz fresh lemon juice
- 3/4 oz ginger syrup*
- 1 oz cold club soda
Ginger syrup: place 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water in a saucepan on low and stir gently to mix. Add 1 cup of coarsely chopped ginger root and simmer for one hour, occasionally stirring. Remove from the heat, allow it to cool, and strain out the ginger.
Shake all ingredients (except club soda and rosemary) over ice for 5-10 seconds.
Strain into an ice-filled glass, topping with club soda, stir gently and garnish with rosemary.
