the honeyhound

   
On Derby Eve, The Germantown Honeyhound and I concocted this little beverage to toast our new backyard neighbors. All 10,000 of them.
   
The Honeyhound:
  • Kentucky bourbon whiskey
  • orange peel
  • honey or orange honey
  • apple blossom or any on-hand, edible bloom
In a mason jar or, better still, a rinsed out honey pot or jam jar, pour three fingers of your favorite bourbon. Add a small piece of orange peel. Coat a wooden honey dipper generously in honey and stir until disolved, pressing the orange peel lightly to release the oils. Garnish with a flower. Drink, and think of the bees.
