• Small Hand Gum Syrup 8.5 fl oz

Also known by its French spelling, gomme, Gum Syrup is a one-to-one sugar-to-water simple syrup with gum arabic, a resin from the Acacia tree, incorporated into it. Gum syrup fell out of favor with bartenders because it is difficult to make, and a straight simple syrup is very easy. However, where both syrups add sweetness, gum syrup adds viscosity as well, giving a richer mouthfeel and weightier texture to cocktails. Organic cane sugar in the product gives it an amber color and a light molasses flavor. It is best used in aromatic, spirit-forward cocktails.

Add all ingredients to a rocks glass and stir to dissolve syrup. Add a large chunk of ice and stir to chill. Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.  Charles H. Baker, Jr., The Gentleman's Companion, 1939
