Honey Bee Martini
April 5, 2013
Today is Friday… this means the weekend is here.Yay! I can post a cocktail and feel great about it. I can feel great ’cause we started the week with Cowgirl Coolers and now we end it together it with delicious Honey Bee Martinis. Do you like the name? I came up with it while I lip smacked on sticky lavender honey. Since spring is here this is a skinny drink ~ for all those skimpy clothes, cocktail sipping sunny days.
The weather is flip flopping around here. Is that happening by you? One minute it’s breezy and cold, the next it’s warm blossom popping heat. The fab news is you can enjoy a Honey Bee Martini any time at all! Cold or hot out ~ don’t matter. Dive in I say!
This Essence of Lavender Honey is a true treat! I found it at my favorite Over the Moon fine foods market here in Telluride. It adds the perfect amount of sweetness to this skinny cocktail. Serve this cocktail for weekend brunch, also perfect for bridal & baby showers. Celebrate!
If there is one thing I know it’s that honey bee’s sure do love honey. Not sure if they like vodka…..but I am sure a sip or two might change their flight pattern a smidge…
If you want a quenching honey sweetened lemonade, then don’t add the spirits. For this martini cocktail use your favorite vodka. I used this Skinny Girl Island Coconut Vodka.…it is lovely in this drink.
Lay a sprig of lavender over your drink for good measure. Also add a lemon wedge. All good to go! Enjoy…
