Juniper & Jupiter

A crisp, cleansing spiced Bees Knees cocktail with ginger, clove, and honey simple syrup. Inspired by the Sagittarius lunar eclipse for purification, wisdom, and spiritual awareness.

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.
