Lavender Honey Sidecar Cocktail
This cocktail is perfect for those Christmas parties or just when you have guests round for dinner.
Makes 1 Cocktail
30 ml Whiskey
25 g Lavender Hilltop Honey
15 ml Cointreau
15 ml Fresh Lemon Juice
A Dash of Orange Bitters
Caster Sugar to Serve
Put your sugar in an even layer on a small plate. Use enough so that when you dip the glass in the sugar, enough will collect on the rim to be visually appealing.
Using a clean cloth, put a dab of orange bitters on the edge of your cocktail glass, making sure the honey is in an even, consistent layer but without clumps.
Turn the glass upside down in the sugar to coat the honey and gently turn right side up. Set aside while you make the cocktail.
In a shaker, add the whiskey, honey, Cointreau, lemon juice and bitters.
Fill the shaker to the top with ice and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds.
Pour through the strainer of the shaker into your cocktail glass and serve immediately.
