What happens when you take The Bee’s Knees, a classic cocktail of gin, lemon and honey, and give it some attitude, some fire in its belly, get it all ticked off and ornery? Well, obviously, you’ve got an Angry Bee on your hands. Usually the least welcome guest at a picnic, this Angry Bee will be the star of the party.
Lemon and chili, a classic match in the kitchen, are just as cute a couple when they step out to the bar. The bright fresh heat of Bird’s Eye Chili Rich Simple Syrup, sunny lemon juice, and a good gin. Perfectly simple and simply perfect. Get it in your glass!
¾ oz Bird’s Eye Chili Rich Simple Syrup
2 oz London dry gin
1 oz fresh lemon juice
Splash club soda
Shake syrup, gin, lemon juice and ice; top with club soda. Garnish with slice of chili and lemon. Savor the burn.
