Whisky and honey smash
Serves 2 |
- 2 tbsp clear honey
- ½ lemon, diced, plus 2 pared strips of lemon zest, to garnish
- 4 sprigs of rosemary
- 100ml whisky (something smoky works well)
- Mix together the honey and 1 tablespoon of boiling water in a cocktail shaker or jar with a lid. Using a spoon, or the end of a rolling pan, muddle (crush together) the diced lemon and leaves from 2 sprigs of rosemary with the honey mixture. Add the whisky and shake to combine.
- Strain into tumblers filled with lots of crushed ice. Garnish each glass with a scorched rosemary sprig (use a blowtorch, or the burner on a gas hob, to torch the ends so they release their aromatics), and the lemon zest.
