1 oz Gin, Hendrick's
1 bsp Honey (Recipe calls for honey from CT)
1 pn Chili pepper (flakes)

Stir (to dissolve the honey), add ice, shake, double strain.


I'd let the chili peppers mingle in one of the liquids for a while to give this a bit more of a kick or add some jalapeno? Or use a honey infused with chili peppers.

Prepared this with Hendrick's Lunar, 2 barspoons homemade honey syrup, else as written.

Garnished with fresh jalapeno slice (since I had it). Placed the chili flake in the shaker first, and was leisurely with my ingredient additions so that it had good contact with the liquids. Has a nice, subtle heat on the finish. Pleasant, delicious, new favorite!
