Chamomile Honeycomb Gimlets + A Visit to the Hangar 1 Distillery
Chamomile blossoms, honey, and lemon flavor this tart, floral gimlet made with Hangar 1 Honeycomb Vodka.
Prep Time: 5minutes
Honey Chamomile Syrup (makes ¾ cup):
2tablespoonsloose chamomile flowers
3tablespoonsorganic granulated cane sugar
For each drink:
¼cupHangar 1 Honeycomb Vodka
2tablespoonsHoney Chamomile Syrup
1 ½tablespoonsfresh strained lemon juice
a small chunk of honeycomb, for garnish
To make the syrup, steep the chamomile flowers in the boiling water until the liquid is bright yellow, 5-10 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh sieve. Stir in the sugar and honey until dissolved. Chill until needed.
To make the drinks, combine the vodka, syrup, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled partway with ice. Shake vigorously for 15-30 seconds, then strain into a coup. Garnish with the honeycomb and serve. The beeswax from the honeycomb can be eaten or not, according to personal preference.
Hangar 1 Honeycomb Vodka can be purchased at their distillery in Alameda; otherwise, try these gimlets with their Straight or Mandarin Blossom Vodkas instead, which are available anywhere high-quality spirits are sold. Hangar 1 Vodka is distilled from gluten-containing grains and, though the distillation process likely removes all traces of gluten, their vodka isn’t certified gluten-free.Nutritional values are based on one drink.
