Damson plums dance with Douglas fir, citrus, and gin in this festively refreshing cocktail.

Note: PDT owner Jim Meehan recommends using Petite Canne syrup in this recipe. Alternatively, you could use a rich demerara syrup (2 parts demerara sugar to 1 part water), though Meehan warns it may be a bit rich for this recipe.
