This cocktail is a variation on a classic Bee’s Knees and features Legend Distilling Black Moon Gin.
Black Moon Gin is a citrus forward gin infused with wild sage and flame torched rosemary.
2 oz Black Moon Gin
3⁄4 oz Fresh lemon juice
1⁄2 oz Honey syrup
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled, salt rimmed cocktail glass. Fill glass with ice and garnish with 1⁄2 a lemon wheel.
The sweet lemon honey syrup is perfectly balanced with the refreshing salt rim and smoky gin.
Honey Syrup Recipe
Heat 1⁄2 cup honey and 1⁄2 cup of water in a small sauce pan. Stir until blended then strain into a mason jar. Keep for 2-4 weeks.
