a cocktail for your weekend

i said to matt yesterday, i either need a vacation or a blizzard. this in-between stuff is no good.


in the meantime, i guess a good drink will have to do.

this was my attempt to recreate a cocktail that i had on valentine's day at wit & wisdom. it has turned out to be a fast favorite, and from what i can tell, will span the seasons. it is fresh and bright, and the thyme garnish makes it just serious enough for the cooler months.




2 oz gin
3/4 oz honey syrup*
1/2 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 oz fresh squeezed orange juice
fresh thyme for garnish

pour ingredients into cocktail shaker filled with ice.

strain into glass / garnish with fresh thyme.

*do not be deterred by the honey syrup! simply combine equal parts honey and water into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. stir until well dissolved. remove from heat, let cool, and store in the fridge.

you guys. please give this a try and let me know what you think. i bet it'd brighten up your winter weekend!
