Baker's Bees Knees Cocktail by AusBotanicals 🐝

Made with:

  • 60ml Baker's Dozen Gin from Hang 10 Distillery

  • 15ml coastal honey syrup

  • 30ml lemon juice

  • Ice

How to:

  • Before juicing your lemons, use a vegetable peeler or channel knife to peel off a strip(s) of zest for your twist.

  • 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.

  • Strain the drink into a coupe or martini glass.

  • Twist the lemon peel over the cocktail to release some of its oils, then drop it in. Enjoy while cold.

How to make honey syrup: 

Combine equal parts honey and water (say, 1/4 cup each if you're only a few cocktails) in a small saucepan. Warm over the stovetop just until you can completely stir the honey into the water. Set aside. Cool before use.
