Honey & Sage Beekeeper

Today we are sharing with you a variation on the classic Bees Knees cocktail that is embellished with fresh Sage. Thanksgiving is on the horizon and with the smells of poultry seasoning in the air, the Honey & Sage Beekeeper cocktail is a perfect drink for the day. We much prefer Barr Hill Gin for this cocktail being that it is made with fresh honey, though any gin will do in a pinch.

Honey & Sage Beekeeper

In an Empty Shaker Glass Add:

  • 3 Fresh Sage Leaves
  • 1 ½ Ounces of Barr Hill Gin
  • ½ Ounce Honey Syrup*
  • ½ Ounce Fresh Lemon Juice

Muddle the ingredients to draw out the aromatics from the Sage, then top with ice and shake till painfully cold. Strain into a martini saucer and garnish with a fresh sage leaf floated atop the drink.

*To make a honey syrup in a saucepan add ¼ cup of honey and ¼ cup of water. Bring to a boil and then let cool. Syrup will keep in the refrigerator for a week.
