This Prohibition-era cocktail of gin, honey and lemon is making a comeback, and PC® Test Kitchen Chef and sommelier Carrie Rau is here for it. “I wanted to jazz it up a bit for the holidays, so I added PC® Black Label Lemon & Ginger Sicilian Soda to give it celebration-worthy bubbles.”

How to make

Ingredients

How to make

  • Step 1

    Stir honey with 1-1/2 tsp (7 mL) hot water in small glass until dissolved. Let cool completely, about 10 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Fill cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add gin, lemon sour mix and 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the honey mixture (discard remaining or reserve to make another cocktail). Close lid and shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker feels cold, about 20 seconds.

  • Step 3

    Pour into cocktail glass over ice and top up glass with soda.

  • Try this:

    Garnish your cocktail with a skewered piece of candied ginger or a lemon twist.

  • Tip:

    Serving a crowd? Make a large batch of the honey mixture ahead, then cool and refrigerate in a jar with a tight-fitting lid for up to 2 weeks.
