Honey Gin Cocktail Recipe

Happy Hour: Bee's Knees

Honey isn't only good stirred into tea; it's also wonderful for sweetening cocktails. In this drink, it adds a lovely floral quality as well as provides a subtle sweetness. With only four ingredients — honey, orange juice, lemon juice, and gin — this libation is fairly simple, but it's sophisticated and perfectly balanced. For those who dislike gin, I recommend trying a different spirit; vodka would be fine, but also a sweeter whiskey or bourbon would be delicious. Ready for the easy recipe? Keep reading.
