3 medium-size borage leaves
1.5 ounces Leopold’s gin (or other citrusy London Dry gin)
.75 ounce lemon juice
.5 ounce gum syrup (can substitute simple syrup)
Dry sparkling wine
Muddle the borage leaves in the cocktail shaker until they are a little frothy. Measure the gin, lemon juice, and gum syrup into a cocktail shaker. Give it a short shake because you will further dilute with sparkling wine, about 5 seconds. Pour into a 5-ounce glass, top with sparkling wine, and garnish with a borage flower.
