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.
