My Mother Ruined My Tonic

I thought that was an opportunity to take a classic cocktail and expand it a little further—and since here, at Solomon & Kuff, we’re a rum hall, of course we want to add a little rum in there as well.

Ingredients

3/4 ounce Fresh-squeezed lime juice

3/4 ounce Bay and sage simple syrup

1/4 ounce mango purée

1 1/2 ounces Gin (Ford's preferred brand or anything not too botanical)

Ice cubes

Tonic water

Splash of rum agricole (distilled from cane juice)

Fresh sage leaf

bay leaf

Directions

  1. In a cocktail shaker, add lime juice, bay and sage simple syrup, mango puree, gin, and ice. Cover and shake. Strain into a tall glass with ice. Top with tonic, stir, then a splash of rum. Garnish with a fresh sage leaf by smashing it first to release the oils, then rubbing it along the rim and into the cocktail. Serve.

Cook’s Note

To make bay and sage simple syrup, heat equal parts sugar and water with several bay and sage leaves. Once the sugar dissolves, remove from the heat and cool.
