(makes 1 drink)


  • 2 oz lemon earl grey honey syrup (*see recipe below)
  • 1.5 oz Viritus Organic Vodka
  • 1 cup (250 ml) ice 
  • lemon peel  twist 


Add the ice to the cocktail shaker then add the syrup and the vodka.

Cap the cocktail shaker and shake well until the cocktail shaker feels

quite cold. Run the lemon peel around the rim of the glass to release the lemon oil.

Uncap the cocktail shaker, and strain the drink into a low ball or coupe glass.

Garnish with the lemon peel and serve immediately

Let cool completely and add the lemon juice.
