Liquid Assets: The Beekeeper Smash

Recipe from Mike Byers, Tribeca Tavern in Cary

Inspired by the sight of bees swarming flowering basil plants during the summer months, the cocktail features N.C. gin, local honey and a smidge of fresh basil.

3 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) of your favorite local gin
1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) local honey
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) simple syrup
1 fresh basil leaf

Combine first four ingredients in a shaker over ice, shake vigorously and strain over fresh ice. Garnish with a fresh basil leaf and enjoy!
