Recipe: Homemade Honey Lemon

Making your own honey

So you understand that cocktails that date back to the Prohibition age are all the trend now, appropriate? If it absolutely was supported at a speakeasy, you'll probably think it is on beverage menu of the swankiest taverns until the after that big thing comes along.

I am a gin woman, therefore I'm actually very keen on most of the cocktails I've discovered since the Prohibition-era cocktail craze has emerged. Many of them initially needed tub gin. I do not make my own gin inside bathtub; my gin of choice is Bluecoat American Dry Gin.

One ingredient you will find in lots of among these cocktails from the 1920s and '30s: honey syrup. Honey syrup is very simple in order to make (just like simple syrup), and it surely will retain in your refrigerator for a very long time once it really is made. If you are hosting any occasion celebration this season, and also you want a well-stocked club, boil up a batch of honey syrup the afternoon before.


  • One part honey (use a flavorful, regional honey — maybe not the dull material within the bear bottle through the food store)
  • One component liquid
  1. Put equal components of honey and water in a tiny saucepan. Boil, after that turn-down to a simmer and blend before honey is wholly mixed.
  2. Cool.
  3. Shop in an airtight container in the fridge.

Cocktails made out of honey syrup

We utilized the honey syrup I made for a Bee's Knees cocktail — 2 ounces of gin, 3/4 ounce of honey syrup and 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice. Shake in a cocktail shaker full of ice and afin de into a martini cup.
