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.
- 2 ounces Martin Miller Westbourne Strength Gin
- 1 ounce 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.
