Here’s a drink that features Earl Flewellen’s honey. In midsummer, when Ben-Shalom noticed that the honey was rich with rum-like qualities, he tried swapping the gin for rum in this recipe and served it as the Bumble Bee.
2ounces Martin Miller Westbourne Strength Gin
1ounce E.G. Flewellen’s Port Costa wildflower honey syrup*
.75 ounce lemon juice
1 twist of lemon peel
Shake and strain into a stemmed cocktail glass of your choice. Garnish with the lemon twist.
*To make honey syrup: measure equal parts by volume of room temperature filtered water with wildflower honey. If you use tap water, boil first and let it cool to room temperature.
