Gin Punch

Page 77 in David Wondrich’s book, Imbibe

1 tablespoonful of raspberry syrup

2 tablespoonfuls of powdered white sugar

1 wine glass (3oz) of Holland Gin (we used Small’s American Dry Gin)

Juice of ½ lemon

2 slices of orange

1 piece of pineapple

Fill the tumbler full of shaved ice, shake well and ornament the top with berries in season. Serve with a straw.

This was head and shoulders the most exciting punch we made in Session #2. The aromatics of our gin added complexity and aromatic boldness to the fresh fruit and the dissolved powdered sugar brought the alcohol, citrus and herbal aromatics all together in a seamless fashion. Delicious.
