The boy and his poison: The Business

This is my de facto favourite drink to entertain with. As I discovered the other day, having a recipe in your back pocket that looks great in any glass, tastes fantastic and can be made with even a modest liquor cabinet is essential (especially if you're dealing with a gusset of thirsty Domestic Sluts).

Somewhere between a syrupy gimlet and a limey 'Bee's Knees', credit to the drink goes to New York's infamous Milk and Honey speakeasy. Its perfect strained into a coupe glass, served over ice if you don't have a shaker or if you're feeling a little flush top it up with some bubbles.

You'll need:
  • 50ml of gin
  • 30ml of lime juice
  • 1tbsp of honey
Make it:
  • Spoon your honey into a heatproof container or jar and microwave it for a few seconds to loosen the consistency
  • Add the lime juice and gin to the honey with a handful of ice and stir for 10 seconds 
  • Strain or just plonk a straw straight in.


  1. I do enjoy this drink.

    Now, dear Nick. What's with putting all our boozes in jam jars? Can't we just use nice glasses like normal people?

    1. Honest reason… or should I build upon your belief that I'm slowly converting my house into a speakeasy where I subsist on bar snacks and gin jars?

    2. That's definitely the best reason. Besides, gin is better than jam.

  2. OMFG - top this up with hot water and you've got a GIN TODDY! :D

    1. Yes. If you substitute the Gin for Vodka (Why would you do such a thing?!) and you have a famous Kenyan drink - 'Dawa' which is Swahili for 'Medicine'. It probably has other history, but that is how I first came across it.
