Honeycomb Gin Cocktail

Honeycomb Gin Cocktail

A cocktail made with real honeycomb is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.


In making this, I thought of the Prohibition era drink, “The Bee’s Knees”, which is a mix of gin, lemon and honey. The 1920’s name means “an extraordinary thing,” and I think the touch of honeycomb in its purest form made the cocktail even more buzzworthy.
