oh my gosh!! you guys! this spritzer is my new favourite drink, and it doesn’t contain any alcohol. SHOCKING! i know right? me? have a favourite drink that isn’t alcoholic?
i will say don’t be too shocked, you could totally add a shot of vodka or tequilla or cointreau they would all be great in here. but honestly it doesn’t need it.
this drink is ballsy. the smokieness brings a savoury undertone that is balanced by the slight sweetness of the honey and the orange really rounds it out.
while i really want a smoking gun, for this drink i used blend smoked honey. i came across this honey at a bbq festival 2 years ago and feel in love.
it is sweet and oh so smoky. it is beautiful on bbq’d meat, but equally as good with everything else i have tried it with. this is the fist drink i have made with it and it did not let me down.
these spritzers are quick to put together and i really hope you give them a shot. i know smoked honey sounds a little out there but it is incredible! i promise you will love it!
