A Bees Knees Cocktail with Nolets Gins and La Aurora Honey created a perfectly balanced, perfectly blended cocktail. The rose, peach, and raspberry botanicals of the gin pair with the fruit and floral notes in the honey to create a light, flavorful, and unusual cocktail. Add a touch of Angostura bitters and pomegranate molasses from Savory Bend to add depth and color.
3 parts Nolets Silver Dry Gin
1 part La Aurora honey syrup
1 part lemon juice
½ part egg white
1 teaspoon pomegranate molasses, optional
If you are using the pomegranate molasses, add it carefully to the bottom of the martini glass.
Fill a shaker with ice. Add the gin, honey syrup, and lemon juice and shake briefly. Add the egg white and shake vigorously—but not too long—until foamy. Strain into a martini glass. Add three drops of Angostura bitters; using a toothpick, drag a line through the egg white and bitters to create a pretty design. Garnish with lemon peel.
*Honey Syrup: Measure ¼ cup of honey into measuring cup. Add ¼ cup of very hot water and stir until smooth. Refrigerate when not in use. For a Nolets Bees Knees, use La Aurora Honey.
