    I am really not a fan of flavoured liquor but I might be inclined to try the honey bee and possibly elderflower. I am a classic gin drinker. I love a Gibson martini, it’s probably my favourite 🙂

  12. February 7, 2018 / 12:30 pm

    These sound so good. I love the sound of your Buzzini recipe. Honeybee Gin, lemon juice and honey – mmm!

  13. February 8, 2018 / 5:15 pm
