I was very happy to create the Tarragon’s Bee cocktail, since it meant that I finally managed to combine so many different ingredients in such a simple concoction.
I enjoy drinking genever neat. But as you may know, I also enjoy creating interesting cocktails. Since I had started experimenting myself in making different things using tarragon (estragon), I ended up drinking the Tarragon’s Bee Cocktail, which is a combination of the Dutch spirit with tea, honey and tarragon. Here is the recipe:
- 45 ml De Ooievaar Loyaal zeer oude genever
- 40 ml fresh orange juice
- 25 ml caramel & vanilla honey syrup*
- 6-7 tarragon leaves
Shake all ingredients with ice and double strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a nice green sprig of tarragon.
