So my kitchen is all packed up. Boxes full of spices, a few neatly wrapped fancy dishes and a bag full of pots and pans that have been clanging around in the back of my car for a few days. Whew! Never want to move again! It’ll take a while to set up the new kitchen – get that ideal workflow going again, but I’ll be back in the groove soon! In the meantime I’m celebrating / unwinding with a drink. This cocktail has been my go-to lately. The bright golden concoction competes for attention with the colors of the season. With hints of fresh herb it’s subtly sweet, smooth and refreshing. Cheers my friends!
1 1/2 oz Aviation American Gin
juice of half a lemon
1 oz Honey syrup*
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
dash of orange bitters
a bit of bubbly water to top if off
Add all ingredients into a large glass filled with ice and shake vigorously. Fine strain into a glass with or without ice. Garnish with a lemon wedge. *To make honey syrup; combine equal parts honey to heated water and stir until honey is dissolved, let cool.
Aviation Gin shared this bottle with me as gift. It was so good, I knew you all would love it too. All opinions are always my own. Enjoy!
