3/4 oz Peach Syrup
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
Shake with ice and strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice cubes. Top with soda water. Garnish with an orange twist, a mint sprig, and a straw.
Sunday almost two weeks ago (Tales of the Cocktail and the posts that followed have made catching up to date rather a challenge), Andrea and I got a message that Ben Sandrof was hosting his Sunday Salon again. When we arrived and sat down at the bar, we noticed a few new drinks on the menu. One of them, the CLT Peche, seemed like a wonderful seasonal one that I ought not let slip by. CLT stands for Claremont, NH, where some members of Ben's family live, and when he was there last, he gathered up a bunch of peaches. Ben made a syrup with some of the peaches to use in this riff on a Tom Collins.
