Scotch-style ale ¾ oz. persimmon-brown sugar syrup* 4 dashes chai tea tincture** In glass of choice, pour ale and add syrup and bitters. Stir and enjoy! *Instructions for persimmon-brown sugar syrup: In saucepan, combine 1 cup water, 1 cup brown sugar, and 1 cup diced persimmon. Bring mixture to a boil then let simmer for 30 minutes. Strain and use. **Instructions for chai tea tincture: Fill an 8 oz. mason jar half full with loose leaf chai tea. Fill the jar with brandy, seal, and let sit for at least 2 weeks. Strain and transfer to a dropper bottle. For a bit more of a winter kick, try adding 1 ½ oz. of Scotch. The same amount dark Jamaican rum will pull this libation in a wonderful tiki direction as well.
