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.

* In order to make the caramel & vanilla honey syrup you should follow the next steps: First you have to make the flavored tea, by leaving two caramel & vanilla Twinnings tea bags into a cup (~200 ml) filled with hot water. Then, transfer the tea into a bigger vessel and another cup of honey into this. Stir the mixture until sugar is fully dissolved.
