Hi guys! I’m so sorry for being MIA these past few days. I just moved to a new apartment and have been living out of a mess of boxes for what feels like a lifetime. I’m finally into the new place and unpacking so I hope to be back to normal soon!
You know I always have you covered, though, so I couldn’t leave you hanging without a hump day treat!
This one meets my standard criteria of 1) delicious and 2) easy:
The Bees Knees
2 oz. Bluecoat American Dry Gin
1/2 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
3/4 oz. Honey Syrup
Combine ingredients and enjoy!
I’ve just recently gotten into gin but this combo with honey and lemon is so tasty. Honey syrup is just an equal combo of honey and hot water, cooled before using so that the honey is fully mixed into the drink. I would also make this in a shaker with ice and skip the honey syrup step. The idea is just that you want the honey dissolved in the cocktail and not sitting on the bottom.
I also happened to have a cutie on hand so feel free to use other citruses! Lemon with a hint of tangerine is awesome.
Hope your week is going well!
