About this Cocktail

Blackbird Bar Summer 2014 By Nathan Cann
Nathan was inspired by a bottle of a mysterious syrup he found in an Indian grocery store. After making his own version of this mystery syrup he made a cocktail to mimic the way you should enjoy the beverage. Tall on ice and with soda.

  • 2 oz Dry Gin
  • .5 house Rooh Afza (see below)
  • .5 lemon
  • 2 dash Peychauds Bitters
  • Top with soda

Place all ingredients in shaker-add ice-shake-strain into tall Collins glass w Ice.

Rooh Afza is a beverage from India. It's a syrup made from rose water- cardamom - cinnamon - pommagranite - and saffron. We make a version with Demerara.

    I remember drinking Rooh Afza in the summer when I lived in Pakistan. Great for keeping hydrated! Will definitely try this out.
