Honey Bee

Saturday was World Gin Day. We are in allergy season; eating local honey is supposed to help. My wife recently recommended a new Gin and Honey cocktail. I celebrated the day and helped my health by making the drink.

The first step is to make honey syrup. Heat equal measures of water and money. Allow to cool, add splashes of vodka as a preservative.

The cocktail itself dates back to Prohibition when covering rough booze was a necessity. It is a Bee’s Knees and is a more complex parent of a Lemon Drop Martini. It is a classic Sour, base spirit with equal measures of sour and sweetener.


Bee’s Knee

2 oz Gin
3/4 oz Honey Syrup
3/4 oz Lemon Juice

  1. That must be an expensive drink!

  2. Yes, I wonder how much money one needs to make 3/4 oz of the syrup? 😉
