Author Notes: This recipe is an attempt to replicate and improve upon a cocktail that we enjoyed recently at one of our favorite restaurants: Oleana in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The goal was to enjoy the magical relationship of cardamom and peaches. The cardamom simple syrup can be used as a springboard for other beverages along with poached fruit desserts. —sticksnscones
