A Refreshing Summer Cocktail!

A Refreshing Summer Cocktail!
Its been a warm summer so cool down with this delicious Bee's Knees Cocktail made with gin, lemon and honey!
  • 15ml Manuka honey syrup
  • ½ a medium lemon
  • 59 ml gin
  • Lemon twist, for garnish
  1. To make the honey syrup: Combine equal parts honey and water (say, 2 tablespoons each if you’re only making a few cocktails) in a microwave-safe bowl or small saucepan. Warm in the microwave or over the stovetop just until you can completely stir the honey into the water. Set aside.
  2. Before juicing your lemons, use a vegetable peeler or knife to peel off a strip of zest for your twist.
  3. To make the cocktail, fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the honey syrup, lemon juice and gin. Securely fasten the lid and shake until the mixture is very cold, about 30 seconds.
  4. Strain the drink into a glass. Twist the lemon peel over the cocktail to release some of its oils, then drop it in.
Enjoy while cold. Cheers!
