Recipe: 2 oz. of gin (Hendrick’s) / .75 oz. of honey / 1/2 of a lemon
Fill shaker with gin, honey, and lemon. Stir first to mix ingredients. Shake to chill. Strain over glass full of ice. Sip and enjoy!
This “great for brunch” cocktail is my take on the simple Bee’s Knees drink. Reducing the honey reveals the flavorful, floral gin – especially in the Hendricks gin. I went super local, so to speak, and just bought honey from next door at Trader Joe’s, but I can only assume this drink gets better with fresh honey or locally made with various flavors and rich-nesses.
