Imbibing Mr. Boston: Bee Sting Cocktail

IMG_3034-800There’s something uncannily luscious about lemon and absinthe.  This is a brilliant cocktail that just plain succeeds on many levels.  I wish I knew who came up with the recipe, but there are too many Bee Sting cocktails (with a wild variety of ingredients) floating around the internet.  Suffice it to say, this one is now on my short list.  Elegant, grand and visually playful with the floating anise star.  A+

Bee Sting
20z gin
0.75oz lemon juice
0.75oz honey syrup
1 tsp absinthe
Garnish: star anise pod

Shake with ice and strain into chilled cocktail glass.  Garnish with star anise.
