    Pineapple Honey Bee Cocktail


    2 tablespoons honey, dissolved in a ¼ cup very warm or hot water
    1 cup Little Black Dress Vodka’s Pineapple Honey flavor
    ¼ cup freshly squeezed, lemon juice, strained
    ½ cup fresh lemon balm leaves, loosely packed 2 dashes of bitters for each cocktail
    Club soda, to top off
    Lemon slices, for garnish


    In a small pitcher add the vodka, honey water and lemon juice. Add the lemon balm (or basil if more easily available) and muddle with a wooden spoon. Pour evenly into mason jars and add the 2 dashes of bitters to each and seal with lid to transport. Once ready to enjoy, add ice cubes and top off with club soda, garnish with lemon slices and serve. Makes 4 to 6 drinks.
