The other day I stumbled upon this recipe on pinterest and I decided to make it that evening, because it looked sooo good. Normally when posting a recipe from another website or blog I would tell you what I’d change next time or do differently from the original recipe, but this was really great as is.
So the only labor intensive part of this is making the honey sage syrup, but it really didn’t take that much time. Next time I make this I’m going to make a ton of this syrup because it disappeared so fast!
The original recipe recommends a bacon honey rim on the drink, which sounds pretty interesting but I obviously skipped this step!
Enjoy your middle-of-the-week cocktail!
It’s crazy what combinations of things can taste good together (peanut butter and cucumber, anyone?). I stumbled upon a cocktail recipe recently that sounded up my alley, but when I went to grab supplies I couldn’t find a few of the key ingredients. This recipe is what I ended up with instead. When I left the grocery store my thought was honestly that I probably should have just scrapped the whole idea and come up with something completely new instead of using half of the right ingredients. But let me tell you, this turned out REALLY good, a great level of sweet and tart.
-1 part New Holland Gin (or equivalent, having quality gin is really key though)
-2 parts ginger ale or ginger beer (I used Reed’s Premium)
-Chunk of orange, squeezed
-Mint, muddled with ice
