  • Summary

    Coffee-Cherry Simple Syrup lends fruity and floral notes to this refreshing summer cocktail. The name is misleading: the syrup contains neither cherries nor coffee beans. When harvesting coffee, farmers pick coffee cherries, which are shelled for their bean pits. The beans are roasted to become the coffee you know. While the cherries are usually discarded, you can actually steep their husks in hot water for an aromatic tea.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup agave nectar
    • 2 ounces dried coffee cherry husks
    • 2 ounces blanco tequila
    • 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
    • 1/2 ounce fresh pomegranate juice
    • 3–4 dashes Angostura bitters
    • Ginger beer (such as Gosling's)
    • Lime wheels (for serving)
