Summertime Rooftop Cocktails

Rooftop Cocktails

This month, we had a fabulous inaugural "Dinner on the Rooftop" in collaboration with the Wine Kitchen and Loudoun Mobile Hope.  Among the treats for the night were two amazing cocktails that the team at Catoctin Creek created.  These are fantastic summer cocktails, especially if made into a punch (just multiply everything by 25 for punch).

Hope on the Rooftop

1 oz strawberry-infused Watershed Gin
¼ oz strawberry-rhubarb syrup
¼ oz sour water (¼ tsp citric acid + 1½ oz water), or substitute lemon juice as an alternative
Soda to top
Rhubarb bitters
Black locust blossoms to garnish

Macerate the strawberries in the gin for at least two days.  Strain and remove the fruit.  To make the syrup, macerate chunks of strawberry and rhubarb in equal parts sugar and water.  Heat over medium heat until well dissolved.  Then strain the fruit from the syrup.  In a shaker, add the sour water, gin and syrup and combine well.  Pour into a rocks glass full of ice and top with soda and garnish.

Lay Me "Doun"

1 oz Roundstone Rye 80 Proof
¼ oz Rose Garden Tea (available from Dominion Tea) made into a simple syrup
Lavender bitters
Lemon peel garnish

Combine the ingredients into a rocks glass with ice and garnish.
