This is (hands down) one of my favorite cider cocktails. I mention it often in the tasting room when asked for cocktail suggestions. Due to the semi-recent popularity of the honey badger from a viral YouTube video, many people often chuckle at the title. This cocktail is balanced enough to be able to use any cider with it but I prefer a dry cider. It calls for honey syrup (to make it easier to mix) but I just use straight honey, mixing it into the gin and lemon before adding the cider. The original recipe called for either cider or mead. Of course, we used cider!
- 1.5 oz Gin
- 1 oz Honey (or Honey Syrup)
- 0.75 oz Lemon Juice
- Hard Cider
- Combine the Gin and Lemon Juice in a glass
- Add Honey and mix thoroughly (Or disolve the honey in a bit of water to make Honey Syrup)
- Add Ice
- Top off with Hard Cider
