Au Natural

The past few days have been full of errands. I have been running nonstop from one place to another. This afternoon, arms loaded with bags, I came in my front door, dropped everything and made this cocktail. An ‘Au Natural’ plum cooler with my favorite pisco. It was the perfect way to un-wind and catch my breath.

  • 2 oz Encanto Pisco
  • 3 oz Plum Syrup
  • 1 oz Fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 oz Sage Brown Sugar Simple Syrup
  • Fever Tree Club Soda

Add all ingredients into a chilled rocks glass with ice. Bar spoon stir. Top with Fever Tree Club Soda, stir again. Garnish with a sprig of sage and a plum wedge.

Cut plums into fourths. Add plums and water to a small saucepan. Bring the water up to a boil for two minutes, and then turn down to a simmer for ten minutes. Let cool. Fine strain solids out and syrup into an airtight container.
