The Honey Bee Cocktail
We're abuzz with this Honey Bee cocktail recipe. Gather your ingredients and we'll mix it up together!

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 oz lavender-honey syrup
  • 3/4 oz lemon juice
  • 5-6 oz champagne or sparkling wine
  • Ice
  • Lavender flower for garnish
Directions:
In a cocktail shaker, add honey-lavender syrup, lemon juice, and ice, and shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds. Strain into a champagne coupe (a shallow, saucer-shaped, stemmed glass). Top with 5-6 oz of champagne, and garnish with a fresh lavender flower.

Recipe For Honey-Lavender Syrup
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 5-6 fresh lavender flowers
Add all ingredients into a small saucepan and heat until a low simmer is reached. Maintain at a low simmer for 1-2 minutes, then turn off the heat and let cool. Strain the mixture into a storage container. Will keep in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.

Have Your Supplies Ready to Plant Along With Us!
Project: Picture Perfect Pollinator Pot-Up

We selected plants that harmonize with our white pot. This combo also plays well with yellow, copper, terra cotta, and even grey pottery. For dark pottery, swap the dark petunias and Sweet Potato Vine for light colors.
  • One large piece of pottery with a saucer, and good drainage. We recommend a pot approximately 12" diameter to plant the recipe below. Larger pot? More plants!
  • One Agastache | 1 gal
  • One Pincushion Flower or Coneflower | 1 gal
  • One Petunia (dark purple) | 4"
  • One Sweet Potato Vine (a variety with dark leaves) | 4"
  • GreenAll® Natural & Organic Potting Soil, or GreenAll® Planting Mix
  • E.B. Stone™ Sure Start Fertilizer
From our pollinator plant "menu", select plants that thrive under similar light and water conditions. Mix and match in the color palette that inspires you.
