son of a beesting

2 oz Gin (Beefeater)
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
3/8 oz Ginger Syrup
3/8 oz Honey Syrup

Shake with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with a large cube (coupe glass, no ice), and garnish wit a spritz of rose water (3 drops) and a piece of candied ginger (omit).
Two Thursdays ago, I spotted a reference to the Son of a Beesting and sought out the recipe on the Bartender's Choice app. The recipe was created by Michael Madrusan at Milk & Honey in Manhattan circa 2009 as a Bee's Knees crossed with the Penicillin, and the name reminded me of the Drink's Bee Sting that took the classic in a black peppercorn direction instead of the ginger-rosewater one here. The Son of a Beesting opened up with a rose and ginger aroma. Next, lemon and honey on the sip buzzed into gin and ginger flavors on the swallow.
