Bebbo Cocktail

A take on the Bee’s Knees, the Bebbo is a very satisfying cocktail.  While it may not mean the cat’s pajamas, it’s herbaceous and tart on the attack, full and round on the palate, and finishes with a lingering sweetness from the honey.

1 1/2 oz. gin (I used Seneca Drums), 1 oz. fresh lemon juice, 1/2 oz. honey, 2 teaspoons o.j.. Stir all ingredients (without ice) until honey is dissolved, add ice, shake and strain into chilled glass. Garnish with a cherry (mine sunk to the bottom).

 If you have trouble getting the honey to dissolve, you can heat it slightly before using it.  If you hadn’t guessed already, this is another drink I wanted to try from Ted Haigh’s book.
