Honeycomb Over

Honeycomb Over

  • 2.0 oz. Wigle Landlocked Spiced Honey Spirit
  • 0.5 oz. St. George Spiced Pear liqueur
  • 0.25 oz. Drambouie
  • 0.25 oz. Cocchi Americano

Stir with ice and strain into coupe.

I’ve had the Wigle Landlocked, a distilled mead that lies somewhere between rum and brandy, for a while and wanted to figure out something tasty with it. Although it might sound sweet, it is not, so I reached for the spiced pear, one of my favorites. It still needed some sweetness, so I thought the honey Scotch liqueur Drambouie would enhance the flavors already there. Finally, I added the Cocchi for some brightness and bitterness.

I feel the name doesn’t really need an explanation. Just having pun.
