True Love Brewster Cocktail

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Ounce  Plymouth Gin
  • 1/5 Ounce  fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 Ounce  golden raisin purée
  • 1/2  Ounce  rosemary-infused honey
  •   Ice

This fresh beer cocktail, created by Summer Bell of Oakland's The New Easy, marries aromatic Plymouth gin, lemon juice, golden raisin purée, and rosemary-infused honey, and is topped with a splash of bitter IPA.

Directions

For the golden raisin purée: Simmer 4 cups of golden raisins with 6 cups of water and 1/2 cup of honey for 20 minutes then blend in a Vitamix till very smooth. Fine-strain through a chinois and let cool.

For the rosemary-infused honey: Make a honey simple syrup by simmering with a ratio 1:1 honey to water. Take off the heat and while still hot add several bunches of fresh rosemary. Let steep for 1 hour or to taste.

For the cocktail: Combine all of the liquid ingredients (except for the IPA) in a shaker with ice. Shake, then strain over fresh ice and top with beer. Garnish with some of the raisin halves.
