You won't bee-lieve how yummy this honey, lemon & lavender gin cocktail is

As one of the greenest capital cities in the world, come springtime London’s verdant spaces are packed with flowers in full bloom and bees a-bumbling. Taste the sweetness of an urban spring in this Signature Cocktail, developed for Craft Gin Club members by our resident gin expert. The Dodd’s Limited Edition Gin - an exclusive for our members - is made using honey collected from London bees, and the flavours in this cocktail make this unique botanical sing.

BUMBLEBEE

Method

Put the gin in a cocktail shaker. Stir in the honey until it’s dissolved. Add ice, then shake and strain into a Collins glass packed with ice (lavender ice cubes are beautiful in this drink!). Top up with Lovely Drinks Garden Lemonade and garnish with a sprinkle of lavender and a twist of lemon peel.

Our tip: use a tea strainer to infuse your cocktail with the flavours of the lavender garnish and remove the bits before you drink, if you prefer.
