RECIPE: Rooftop Lady

  • 1 ½ oz Dry Gin (we used Crater Lake Gin)
  • 1 oz Lemon Juice
  • ½ oz Butterfly Simple Syrup (see below)
  • Grapefruit seltzer to top

In a collins or pint glass, combine gin, lemon juice & syrup over ice. Add grapefruit seltzer to fill glass. Give it a little stir. Garnish with a grapefruit wheel.

Butterfly Simple Syrup

Bring water to a boil. Remove from heat, add tea, and steep for 5 minutes. Remove tea leaves and return to a low boil. Add sugar and stir for until sugar has dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Store in the refrigerator for up to 30 days.
(Any butterfly pea flower tea can be used as a substitution.)
