Aplós & Maple Syrup
A cocktail by Jessica Manning
Maple or simple syrup
Shake ingredients with ice in a shaker. Strain into a coupe glass and top with soda water. Garnish with a mint leaf.
A career is a great distraction, but from what? There’s nothing to gain from doing nothing. Besides, carpe diem! Which in capitalism translates to: capitalize on every moment! But professionally fulfilled or not, once in a while we will look up from our desk and feel suddenly struck with the utter absurdity of work. It is absurd, is it not, to attempt to make your time useful? There may be nothing to gain from doing nothing, but must we always gain? Before this line of thinking unravels into one of those dreaded career changes, let’s walk away from our desk, and engage, instead, in being. Being rather than producing. Being rather than having. Being rather than performing. We all need a brief affair with insubordination.
Spice agave syrup
To make the syrup, dissolve ½ cup of agave nectar with ½ cup of hot water stir gently to mix. Add a split vanilla bean, 2 cinnamon sticks, and 4 smashed green cardamom pods. Leave to infuse for a few hours or overnight.
Add all ingredients to an ice-filled shaker and shake. Strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with coffee beans, if you please.
We invite you to step into the embrace of fall with an Aplós cocktail in hand. Our most precious moments are often quiet ones, where we’re able to see and listen to the significance of the simple things around us. Here's reconnecting to the magic of everyday life, one sip at a time.
