We love an Old Fashioned, but it often feels like a cold-weather drink. Enter – peaches. Or really any summer stone fruit. This is so simple and so delicious on a balmy summer day.We’ve offered Runamok Cocktail Syrups for a few years now because they do such a good job at creating delicious, all natural flavor infusions. Enjoy the smoked version or regular, depending on your preference. Hello campfire vibes!
