“We have great opportunity to mix things that have never been mixed in cocktails before and pick from our garden unique garnishes and ingredients,” says Enlightenment Wines co-founder Arley Marks, who developed the recipe with Honey’s bartender Torrey Bell-Edwards. Floralia mead, produced in Brooklyn and used in this cocktail, is infused with lavender, marjoram and juniper. “The Floralia Gimlet [is] a crisp, refreshing garden-to-glass cocktail that expresses what we do.”

  • 1½ ounces Material Vodka
  • 1 ounce Floralia Mead
  • ¼ ounce lemon juice
  • ¼ ounce raw sugar simple syrup, to taste
  • 5 drops yuzu juice
  • Lemon mint marigold, for garnish

Add all ingredients except garnish into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until chilled. Strain over fresh ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with lemon mint marigold.
