BEES KNEES - HWRLI BWM
The Captain's Wife version of the classic Bees Knees cocktail we have called the Hwrli Bwm - Bumblebee. It's a delicious Prohibition-era cocktail of gin, honey, lemon and orange juice. Initially it was created to mask the dubious quality of the liquor of the day. However its a big winner on a very hot day. As Lavender is the most Bumble Bee friendly flower in the garden we pay tribute to the Hwrli Bwm with a Lavender garnish.
How to make Honey Syrup
Add 1/2 cup of honey and 1/2 cup water to a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until blended. Strain into a jar and seal - this will keep in the fridge for a month.
Add gin and honey syrup to a shaker. Stir well. Add the lemon and orange juice and top with ice. Shake well. Strain into a Martini glass and garnish with lavender.
Iechyd Da Hwrli Bwm!
