Monkey Mind Recipe

"The key to the balance of this sour cocktail is making sure that citrus balances with the honey. You'll find that by using a herbal honey, you will complement and amplify the herbal notes within the gin. You want this cocktail to be a little on the tart side, but not mouth-puckering. As all honeys are different, don't be afraid to add a little more or less to balance to your own preference."

- Emma Stokes, Drinks Distilled Spirits Guide


What you need 


  1. Add 50ml gin, 20ml fresh lemon juice, 15ml sage honey or honey, 1 dash of absinthe, egg white and sage leaves to a cocktail shaker and dry shake first (without ice).

  2. Shake again using ice and then double strain into a chilled Rocks  or Coupe glass.

  3. Garnish with a sprig of sage.

Sage honey recipe

  1. Chop a bunch of fresh sage leaves (or rosemary or thyme if you prefer) and add to a sterilised jar alongside an equal volume of honey (local or small batch is recommended as they are less likely to be fortified with sugar and water).

  2. Leave in a dark place to infuse for at least a week but no more than two. There’s no need to strain out the pieces as you’ll catch them in your fine strainer when creating your cocktail.
