Matt Sasaki, expert mixologist at the award-winning Edge Steakhouse at The Westgate Hotel, is always dreaming up tasty libations for the discriminating diner. The Hilltop Dream is no exception. Just when you think you spot the leaves changing on the mountain, we get a nice warm summer day in Park City, perfect for sipping on the refreshing Hilltop Dream at Edge Steakhouse. For those of you who want to create this refreshing beverage at home, Sasaki has generously shared their recipe.
Here is the one-two step on how to make an infused simple syrup for the recipe. Simple is the key. You take one part sugar to one part water, boil until sugar is dissolved and cool to room temperature. Simple syrup can be stored in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to two weeks. To infuse simple syrup, for example, with lavender as the Hilltop Dream recipe calls for, add 2 tablespoons for each part of water and boil with the sugar. Allow to cool and steep for 1 hour. Strain lavender flowers.
