Yew Seafood + Bar bartender Jessica Hoffman was inspired to create the Beehive after an afternoon enjoying passion fruit in the Spanish sun. The cocktail is a playful combination of the floral and citrus notes of gin and fresh passion fruit, with the addition of ginger beer to balance the sweetness. It’s an uplifting sipper to welcome spring.
2 oz Bombay Sapphire gin
3/4 oz lemon juice
3/4 oz honey syrup
3/4 oz fresh passion fruit
2 dashes Angostura bitters
To make honey syrup, heat equal parts honey and water in a saucepan until the honey melts. (Store in fridge and shake before using.)
Combine all ingredients except ginger beer in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously with ice. Strain through a mesh strainer into a chilled tall glass. Top with ginger beer. Garnish with a dehydrated orange or lemon wheel and a fresh sprig of rosemary.More
