I am a sucker for a bottle with a pretty label. And truth be known, the label on a bottle of Dry Curacao orange liqueur is at least 75% of the reason I bought it the first time. Subsequent purchases have been because it is SO GOOD! It’s a wonderful orange liqueur that adds something really special to the right cocktail!
I wanted to try it in something new, so I went on a search and found a cocktail called The Hive Mind. I tweaked it just a hair and instantly fell in love. So here it is! I highly recommend adding a pretty bottle of Dry Curacao to your home bar then exploring other cocktails to make with it! (Like this one or this one!)
>> WHAT YOU NEED <<
2 ounces gin
1 ounce lemon juice
1/2 ounce honey
1/2 ounce dry curacao
>> WHAT YOU DO <<
Put all ingredients into a shaker and shake just a little to dissolve the honey into the other liquids. Then add ice and continue shaking. Strain in a pretty glass over a big ice cube (if you wish) and garnish with lemon.
Our favorite bar tools that we use when making cocktails like this are this shaker and this ice sphere mold. And if you need a cheat sheet on how to turn ounces into tablespoons/cups, scroll to the bottom of this post! 🙂
