Chamomile Honeycomb Gimlets by The Bojon Gourmet

¼ cup Hangar 1 Honeycomb Vodka 2 tablespoons Honey Chamomile Syrup 1 ½ tablespoons fresh strained lemon juice a small chunk of honeycomb, for garnish Honey Chamomile Syrup (makes ¾ cup): ½ cup boiling water 2 tablespoons loose chamomile flowers 3 tablespoons organic granulated cane sugar 2 tablespoons mild honey

PREPARATION:

To make the syrup, steep the chamomile flowers in the boiling water until the liquid is bright yellow, 5-10 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh sieve. Stir in the sugar and honey until dissolved. Chill until needed. To make the drinks, combine the vodka, syrup, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled partially with ice. Shake vigorously for 15-30 seconds, then strain into a coupe. Garnish with the honeycomb and serve. Note: Hangar 1 Honeycomb Vodka can be purchased at​ ​our​ ​distillery in Alameda; otherwise, try these gimlets with Hangar 1 Straight or Mandarin Blossom Vodkas instead, which are available anywhere high-quality spirits are sold.
