Sips and Sounds, Volume 11

Vol. 11
The Sip: Hop Fuss
The Sound: The Killers, Hot Fuss
I was surprised to realize last week that I had yet to feature any good ol' Killers records. This one's an old favorite and true classic. The accompanying cocktail has such an interesting flavor combination. If you like hops and herbal notes, I highly recommend it!

Combine 1 oz gin and .5 oz pineapple simple syrup*. Fill your glass with ice and top with IPA (I used Lagunitas). Stir and garnish with some slapped sage leaves.

*Simmer equal parts sugar and water with chopped fresh pineapple. Strain and cool. You can also experiment with pureed fresh pineapple or pineapple juice in the above cocktail.
