"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 

Instructions: 

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!
