The homemade honey syrup in this easy prohibition-era cocktail gives you the right kind of buzz. The botanical elements of gin combined with the sweet aroma of the honey syrup give this drink a decidedly summer feel. Best enjoyed with friends on a patio.
In a container, combine honey and hot water and stir until completely mixed. Use immediately or store and refrigerate for up to five days.
In a shaker tin, combine fresh lemon juice, honey syrup, gin, and ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a coupe glass.
