Categories     Cocktail

Time 5m

Number Of Ingredients 4

1/2 ounce honey syrup (see step 1)
1 ounce lemon juice (about 1/2 medium lemon)
2 ounces gin
Lemon twist, for garnish

Steps:

  • 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.
  • 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.
