This is grown-up lemonade. The aromatics in the gin and the fresh lemon and persimmon bitters pair beautifully. The honey makes it just sweet enough, but only to balance the tart lemon. Mix up a batch and go have a spring picnic.
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
½ ounce honey
A few dashes of persimmon bitters
2 ounces SRD gin
Combine lemon juice, honey, bitters, and shake, then add ice and gin and shake. Serve on the rocks with a lemon wedge.
