  • 1.5 oz of a nice floral gin with plenty of citrus rind (Beefeater, Tanqueray Ten are good)
  • .75 oz meyer lemon juice
  • .5 oz raspberry syrup (Thad recommends Small Hands Foods organic raspberry syrup)
  • 1 dash of cream (very light dash)
  • 1 mint leaf

Shake well and strain through a fine strainer into a chilled cocktail glass
