This drink has its roots in prohibition. With the increased sale of bathtub gin, bartenders needed to find a way to lessen the overpowering edge of the liquor's taste. By adding honey and lemon, the citrusy sweet flavors became the saving grace for many people's taste buds. 

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces of gin
  • .75 ounces of lemon juice
  • .75 ounces of honey simple syrup

Instructions:

  1. Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker
  2. Shake well
  3. Strain into a rocks glass
  4. Garnish with a peel
