Our Beekeeper's Blanket is a slight variation on the classic prohibition gin-based cocktail, the Bee's Knees. With surprisingly little tinkering this typically refreshing quaff turns into the perfect cup of warmth for any post-ski/hike/long nap occasion. Prohibition Distillery's Bootlegger 21 Gin is perfect for this one because of its great balance between citrus and juniper; not too piney and bright enough so you can have a couple without crushing your taste buds.
- 2 ounces water
- 2 ounces Prohibition Distillery's Bootlegger 21 Gin
- 1/2 ounce thyme honey syrup
- 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
In a small saucepan over high heat add 2-4 ounces of water and bring it to the point where small bubbles begin to form. It shouldn't take long with such a small amount (you can also just cheat and microwave the water, we won’t tell).
In a shaker, add the gin, thyme honey syrup, and lemon juice with no ice. Give it 5-10 good shakes and pour it into a mug.
Pour in the hot water and stir to mix everything together. Garnish with a sprig of thyme.
