"HONEY, I'M HOME!" Apis Mercantile Bourbon Barrel-Aged Honey cocktail.

Mixologist Notes: For this recipe, you can use either the Bourbon Barrel-Aged Wildflower honey or the Bourbon Barrel-Aged Orange Blossom honey. The oak barrel and smoky bourbon help to pull out the floral notes of the honey; this is especially true of the orange blossom, which has a "citrus lift" at the finish.

Ingredient List:

(3) oz of apple cider
(0.75) oz of Bourbon Barrel-Aged honey simple syrup- see instructions for how to
(0.5) oz of fresh lemon juice
Orange bitters
Angostura bitters 
(2) oz High Wire Distilling Co. New Southern Revival Bourbon 


1. To make this amazing cocktail, we first need to make a honey simple syrup using a ratio of two parts Apis Mercantile Bourbon Barrel-Aged Orange Blossom honey and water. I like to keep some ready-made honey simple syrup for easy drink making in the fridge, so make as much simple syrup as you'd like. 

2. In a pan, add 3 oz of apple cider, 0.75 oz of honey simple syrup, 0.5 oz lemon juice, a dash of orange bitters, and a dash of angostura bitters. Gently warm the mixture on the stove.

3. When the mixture has been warmed, add 2 oz of your High Wire Distilling Co. Bourbon; Pour into mug and garnish with orange peel and cinnamon stick and, honey, you're home!
