There’s nothing wrong with a cold beer on a hot day but sometimes you’ve got to change shit up. Don’t let summer slip by without sipping on this refreshing son of a bitch. Plums, plucots, pluots, use whatthefuckever you can find. Any of these sweet ass stone fruits will work. Level up your libations, motherfucker. 

STONE FRUIT SMASH
makes 2 drinks
2 plums or similar sized stone fruit
6 sprigs fresh thyme
4 ounces gin
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1-2 teaspoons agave or other liquid sweetener*
ice
splash of tonic or soda water**
Cut the plums up into bite-sized pieces. Leave the skin on, don’t overthink this shit. Thrown them in a jar or large glass with a lid. Add the tiny ass branches of thyme, gin, lemon juice, sweetener, and a handful of ice to the jar and throw on the lid. Shake the ever-living fuck out of it until the ice smashes the fruit pieces and everything looks banged to hell. Strain out all the big chunks of fruit and thyme and pour the remaining drink into some glasses over ice. Everything should be all plum colored and looking fancy. You can drink this beautiful bastard as is but feel free to add a couple splashes of tonic if that’s you’re shit.
*If your fruit is sweet enough you can just leave this shit out. Do whatever tastes right to you.
** Optional but add this if you like your drinks to have a little less bite.

I packed nearly everything I needed to make #ColdBrew in my room. Four Barrel coffee; check. Oversized mason jar; check. Strainer; check.  2nd container to strain into; doh!

Sure all the hotel staff laughed when I went downstairs with a giant mason jar of cold #coffee and explained my dilemma but they gave me a giant pickle jar for my trouble.  I love you too, #Baku.
