Last Wednesday was O's and my 9 years of being snuggly anniversary. Nine years past to the day we were driving home from a weekend trip to visit a friend in Mississippi. It was a long drive, and I was super bummed because I thought he didn't like me. I mean allll weekend, and he never made a move on me. I was determined to never see him again! Luckily he reached out to hold my hand, we had our first giggly, sweet kiss and we have been lovey dovey ever since.
To celebrate we took a long walk to dinner, and had a long walk home. We went to Leon's, and boy was I excited when I saw that they have my favorite drink ever back for the fall season. I can't wait to share this with you! Its complex flavor is full of citrus, herbs, warmth from the spicy honey and its strong to ward off the chilly night air. Make it this weekend, I know I will.
Meet Miles, the adorable mustachioed bar tender who let me take pictures of him making my drink. You gotta shake it like a pro!
Don't forget the garnish! It so pretty. I like to serve it with a giant square ice cube, like Leons does. YUM.
1oz fresh lemon
.5oz spiced honey syrup*
.25oz green chartreuse
2 dashes angostura bitters.
