Steps to make…

To make the bay leaf syrup, put two bay leaves in a saucepan with two parts sugar to one part water, and slowly bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat when the sugar has dissolved and leave to cool. Stir all ingredients with ice in a mixing glass or jar. Add cubed ice to a rocks glass. Strain the drink over the ice.
