It’s Friday, it is beautiful, is it cocktail time yet? Because the latest apron is inspired after my favorite beverage, gin, I got obsessed with finding a a classic gin based cocktail.
The Bee’s Knees with a lavender Twist
- 2.5 oz of your favorite gin
- 3/4 oz honey infused with lavender
- 3/4 oz lemon juice
- Dried Lavender sprigs
First infuse lavender and Honey… Bring to the boil 1/8 cup water, Dried Lavender and steep for a long as possible (the longer the better). Add 1/4 cup of honey and stir well. Allow to cool.
Combine honey, lemon juice and Gin in a cocktail shaker, shake and pour…
Most of the recipes I found only called for 2 oz of gin, but I found the cocktail to be on the sweet side the first time I made it so I added a splash more gin and it was perfect!
To make it with out the lavender skip the steeping part and just use honey. I just wanted to use it because I was inspired by the lavender hues in my apron.
