Making the Gin Honey Bee cocktail

To make this refreshing drink, you will need:

  • A small bunch of fresh mint leaves
  • Some quality honey 
  • The juice of 2 small lemons 
  • Some of my delicious and easy Rosemary-Lemon Infused Gin, or plain gin
  • 1/4 cup white wine such as Pinot Grigio 

To assemble the cocktail, you’ll simply need to muddle the mint and honey in the bottom of your shaker or jar to release the mint’s flavor and aroma, add the lemon juice, infused gin and wine and shake well.

Pour that over ice, and garnish it with a bit of fresh mint, and a lemon wedge and you’re done!

Making these cocktails for a crowd

To make a larger batch, simply increase the honey and mint you muddle, transfer to a pitcher or carafe and stir/shake well with the other ingredients. One batch of my Rosemary-Lemon Infused Gin makes 5 cocktails!

If you make the infused gin and want to try another cocktail, give my Rosemary-Lemon Gin Fizz a try!
