Citrus Rosemary Cocktail Syrup // Raft // Portland, OR
From the fog-slicked slopes of the Pacific Northwest, as far from the south seas as it seems possible to get, comes an unexpected flash of island flavor, like beachside sun filtered through the pines. Natural cane sugar, bright bursting citrus, and a twist of woodsy rosemary (Oregon’s piney trademark). Dash it in seltzer for a healthier soda, or whip up a big-batch cocktail for self-serve at the party. We like adding it to gin and soda, and topping with a sugar-dusted and grilled lemon, sprig of rosemary, and serving — natch — in Portland-proven mason jars.
