Counting House Head Bartender Kacey Liebes and Beverage Manager Jennifer Salomé concocted this floral, fruity and slightly savory gin cocktail, finding inspiration in black plums from the Durham Farmers’ Market in combination with a special ingredient: elderflower syrup. “[It] comes from Austria in very limited supply, only once a year!” Jen says. “We were lucky enough to acquire some, and it played lovely with the plums.” The syrup and Beefeater gin is combined with Cocchi Vermouth di Torino, which “adds body and a touch of herbaceousness,” plum and lemon juice, and a half dropper of celery seed tincture that “ties it all together by adding a clean herbal note to the end of the drink,” Jen says. “[It’s] refreshing and intriguing, a perfect combination … making you want to come back for another sip.”
