Whiskey Cocktails

The Bumble Bea

We put a spin on the classic whiskey sour especially for our friend Aisling Bea’s birthday. It’s hard to Bea-lieve that something so green could taste this good. Our version includes a homemade orange and vanilla infused honey syrup.

Step-by-step

How to make

  1. To make the infused honey syrup is easy (we promise): 1 jar honey ; 1/2 jar water; 1 orange; Vanilla extract or vanilla pods. Simply put the honey and water in a pot and bring to the boil. Add vanilla extract to taste and the orange peel. Pour into a container and allow to infuse for 24 hours. More extract can be added to the drink itself should you feel you would like more vanilla notes.
  2. Empty your glass of ice and strain the shaker contents into the chilled glass.
  3. Grab your shaker, measure and ingredients.
  4. Add all ingredients to your shaker.
  5. Two part shake; dry shake the contents first with no ice. Shake for around 5 seconds to mix the ingredients. Then add ice and shake vigorously.
  6. Empty your glass of ice and strain the shaker contents into the chilled glass.
  7. Garnish with orange oil by pinching some orange peel over the glass.
  8. Rub the peel along the rim + stem and finish this by placing the orange peel on top of serve.

About this Cocktail

One of the most common questions we get asked is how to make a green cocktail without using additives or colourings. Well, here is your answer…Spirulina. This is a seaweed and algae extract. It’s a sustainable ingredient which contains a high source of plant protein. It has minimal impact on the flavour of the serve but adds that lovely hint of green.
