Cocktails

Hitchin Calling

60ml Hitchin Honey Gin
15ml (Dry) Fino Sherry
15ml Freshly squeezed lemon juice
5ml Honey Syrup • 2 dashes orange bitters
Garnish: Grapefruit Peel Twist
Glass: Coupe

Add all the ingredients to a shaker half filled with ice, shake well for 20 seconds and double strain into a chilled coupe.

Handy Tip

Fill your glasses with ice for at least 5 minutes to chill
the glass and keep your drink cooler for longer!

Bee Groni

30ml Hitchin Honey Gin
30ml Aperol • 30ml Vermouth
Garnish: Orange Peel or Dehydrated Orange
Glass: Tumbler

Half fill a glass with ice, add all ingredients, stir for 30-40 seconds, top with more ice and stir again, twist orange peel so essential oils spray onto the top and wipe the peel along the rim of the glass then add peel into the drink.

Handy Tip

Expressing an orange peel is the traditional garnish for a Negroni but a dehydrated orange adds a great flavour too!

Lavender Spritz

40ml Lavender Honey Gin
10ml Pomegranate Elderflower Cordial
10ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
50ml Prosecco • 50ml Soda Water
Garnish: Pomegranate seeds and Lavender Stems
Glass: Spritz Glass

Add Lavender Honey Gin, cordial and lemon juice to a shaker with some ice, shake for 20 seconds. Double strain into a spritz or wine glass half filled with ice, top with chilled prosecco and soda water, add extra ice if necessary.

Handy Tip

Try experimenting with other cordials like Elderflower or Blood Orange. Prosecco is sweeter than Champagne so you may have to adjust the soda water to taste.

Bees Knees

60ml Hitchin Honey Gin
25ml Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
25ml Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
20ml Honey Syrup
Optional Foamer: Either 1 egg white or 0.75ml Ms Betters Bitters Miraculous Foamers
Garnish: Dehydrated Orange or Orange Peel
Glass: Tumbler

Without Foam: Add all the ingredients to a shaker half filled with ice, shake well for 20 seconds and double strain into a tumbler half filled with fresh ice.
With Foam: If creating a foam using egg white/foamer add all into a shaker with no ice first, shake well for 30-40 seconds before adding ice and shaking for a further 20 seconds.

Handy Tip

Filter the squeezed juices through a fine tea sieve to remove any bits before adding to the shaker for a clearer cocktail

Honey Gin-Mule

50ml Hitchin Honey Gin
15ml Honey, Ginger, Fennel syrup
15ml freshly squeezed lime juice
75ml ginger beer
Garnish: Mint, lime wedge
Glass: High Ball or copper mule mug

Muddle a mint sprig and syrup in the base of a shaker, add lime juice and Hitchin Honey Gin, half fill with ice, shake for 20 seconds then stain into a tall Collins glass filled with ice, top with ginger beer and stir.

Handy Tip

A muddler is a tool a bit like a pestle is to a mortar, but in this case don’t mash the leaves as it will make the drink bitter. If you don’t have a muddler use the back of a table spoon and lightly squeeze the mint to the side of the shaker to release its essential oils.
