Classic Remedium

From Latin, “remedium” translates to “remedy,” and Pat Gioia’s Classic Remedium will cure at least a bad day. A syrup made with fresh strawberry and aromatic herbs, including chamomile and lavender, gives the gin cocktail floral notes and a calming effect, while a splash of sparkling rosé adds the perfect brightness for the season.
