Friday Night Cocktails with Jason

IMG_1578

This drink is actually my go-to. This is probably my favorite cocktail. Pretty simple, but pretty darn good. Basically, this is a Bee’s Knees, with a little bit of fun added in to make it look gorgeous.

A couple of months ago, Jason was playing bartender at a friend’s birthday party and brought along the supplies for this drink special for me.  Jason was supposed to be making Pisco Sours and Margaritas for the party, but everyone kept asking me what I was drinking.  Soon, everyone was asking Jason to make my drink for them, and the drink became known as “The Megan.”  So, amongst friends, this is not a Bee’s Knees, but A “Megan.” 😉

The Recipe:

1 1/2 parts Hendricks Gin

1/2 part Honey Simple Syrup*

3/4 Fresh Lemon juice

Garnish:

We garnished this with a slice of honeycomb and some fresh flowers for looks. You can really garnish this with multiple things. I have found that lavender works really well with this drink too!

* To make honey simple syrup use equal parts honey and and water.*

Pour all ingredients in a shaker with ice

Enjoy!

Happy Friday, folks! Cheers!
