Mocktail for T.

Todd Thrasher created this drink in honor of his one-year-old son, Trystan. The recipe calls for lemon bitters, a concentrated, alcohol-based, lemon-infused tincture; omit them to make the drink totally alcohol-free.

Notes

Tonic Syrup In a large saucepan, bring 16 ounces water to a boil. Stir in 1/2 cup sugar until dissolved. Whisk in 1 tablespoon honey, 1/2 coarsely chopped lemongrass stalk (tender inner core only), 1/4 teaspoon dried lavender buds and 1/2 tablespoon cinchona bark powder. Simmer over low heat until reduced by half, about 45 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve, then a fine coffee filter and finally through a paper coffee filter. Let cool, then add 1/2 ounce each of lemon juice and lime juice. Refrigerate the syrup for up to 2 weeks. Makes about 10 ounces.
