Today’s drink has to be one of my top favorites. I’m a huge gin lover and even had two gin signature drinks at my wedding. This drink happens to be a play on one of those drinks. At the wedding I had a “bees knees” cocktail and this is very similar but with just a little twist.

This drink has a mixture of fresh squeezed lemons, honey, rosemary honey syrup, tonic water and of course a little gin! Plus, I love the little added sprig of rosemary. It smells amazing and rosemary always reminds me of Christmas. Cheers!

Yield: 1 drink (plus extra syrup)

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes

Ingredients:

For drink:

  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1/2 lemon squeezed
  • 1/2 - 3/4 ounces honey rosemary syrup
  • Tonic water

For honey rosemary syrup:

  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 4 large sprigs rosemary
  • 1/2 cup mild honey (I used orange blossom)

Directions:

For drink:
Fill a small cocktail glass with ice and add in gin, lemon juice and honey rosemary syrup.

Give it a stir and top off with tonic water. Add 2 lemon slices and a sprig of rosemary for garnish.

Add boiling hot water and rosemary sprigs to a bowl. Let steep for 1 hour, remove rosemary and stir in honey. Whisk until honey combines.

      Hi Dennis! I like to use a dry red wine – something like a cabernet sauvignon.
