A delightful herbal cocktail, lightly sweetened, utilizing salt in the drink instead of as a rimmer. The key is to steep fennel thyme salt in the honey syrup for a bit to allow the flavors to develop. Smooth and sophisticated.
1 TB water
1 TB honey
1/2 tsp. Fennel Thyme Salt Blend
1 TB fresh lemon juice
2 oz. Gin of choice
Place water, honey, salt in a small bowl and heat in microwave to melt honey. Stir to mix and set aside for 10 minutes to steep and cool. Mix in lemon juice. Fill a shaker with ice, add honey mix and Gin and shake. Strain in to a martini or wine glass and enjoy.
