Juniper & Jupiter

Energetic Alignment: Spirituality, Healing, Love, Protection, Purification, Wisdom, Divination

Cleanse away the chaos and align to the spiritual energies of the Sagittarius New Moon and eclipse with this crisp, refreshing, and slightly spicy bees knees variation. In comparison to its whiskey-based counterparts (the Spiced Sagittarius Hot Toddy and Whiskey sour for the eclipse), this cocktail utilizes the magic of juniper through gin. Aligned to the Sun, Moon, and associated with Sagittarius, juniper is powerful purification herb, that also enhances psychic connection, inspires healing, and helps with grounding as well. Along with purifying rosemary, invigorating ginger, spices like nutmeg and clove along with honey to help heighten spiritual energies and invoke wisdom – this bees knees variation is the ideal for a crisp cocktail for cleansing and spiritual alignment for this eclipse.

Juniper & Jupiter

A crisp, cleansing Bees Knees variation inspired by the Sagittarius new moon and solar eclipse.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 1 thin slice ginger
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ground clove
  • 3/4 ounce honey simple syrup (1:1 parts honey to hot water)
  • 3/4 ounce lemon juice
  • 4+ drops rosewater
  • 1.5 ounces gin

Instructions
 

  • In a cocktail shaker, place ginger, rosemary, spices and honey syrup. Muddle them together, breaking apart the ginger, feeling any personal barriers falling away as you do. Then add gin, lemon, rosewater, and if you wish – allspice liqueur. Add ice, shake and strain into a coupe glass, and express and adron with lemon peel.

Notes

Honey Syrup is equal parts honey to hot water. It makes the honey easier to work with in cocktails, and keeps a level of consistency given that the viscosity of honey can vary from type to type. Simply mix the honey and hot water, and allow to cool before use.
