Tasting notes of this Waterloo No. 9 Gin include lavender, bright grapefruit, pecan and juniper. Serve in chilled coupe glasses.

INGREDIENTS

2oz Waterloo No. 9 Gin

.75oz Lemon Juice

1oz Coconut Cream

Fresh Raspberry + Mint

.75oz Raspberry Gum Syrup*

SHAKE IT!

Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake vigorously for about 45-seconds to 1 minute. You’ll want to get a nice foam from aeration.

*RASPBERRY GUM SYRUP RECIPE

Bring 1-2 containers of raspberries and 2-3 cups of water to a boil. Strain water into separate container and discard boiled raspberries and seeds.

Measure out remaining raspberry water and add 2 cups of sugar for every 1 cup of water. Make sure to mix when the water is still hot.

Take note—this syrup is thicker than regular simple syrup.
