Columbus Discovered America, What Have You Discovered?

goodflow honeyWhen I first moved to Texas three years ago, my eyes were opened to a world of super local produce. Living in Las Vegas for 10 years prior, there were very little “local” farms or products. The first item I fell in love with was the local honey producer Goodflow Honey in Austin. There’s a real rustic citrus hint in the honey. After tasting this wonderful honey I instantly thought of the age old cocktail the Bees Knees. Once I made this cocktail with the local honey rather than the common honey found in many grocery stores, I discovered that the drink took on a whole new level of freshness and complexity. Add the citrus, floral and spice notes in Aviation American Gin and you have one of the finest and simplest cocktails I’ve ever had.
