1/2 oz. Fever-Tree soda water
1/2 oz. Smoked Maple Syrup

Pour all ingredients on the rocks in a lowball glass, stir. Squeeze orange peel over drink, then garnish.
At Wit and Wisdom, head bartender Adrian Ross-Boon and company take the technical aspect of serving drinks to a whole new level. "We make classic cocktails the way they should be done: fresh juices daily, we make our own syrups, bitters, and infusions ... we even use cold draft ice cubes so that your drink never waters down," said Ross-Boon. Add to that some meticulous craftsmanship.
