Friday finally.

Let’s drink to the weekend.

The gin-based Saint-Florent Cocktail, with its hint of citrus and honey, is cheerful and fun.

Ingredients:

Honey Syrup (recipe follows)
1½ cups gin
¾ cup fresh lime juice
½ cup Aperol
Angostura bitters
Champagne or sparkling wine
8 lime wheels

Directions:

1. Combine 6 tablespoons gin, 3 tablespoons lime juice, 2 tablespoons Aperol, 1 tablespoon honey syrup, and 2 dashes of Angostura bitters in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice, cover and shake for 30 seconds.

2. Strain into 2 chilled cocktail glasses. Top off each with Champagne and garnish with a lime wheel.

3. Repeat three more times.

Note: I mixed all ingredients in a small pitcher. I shook half with ice for 4 of the cocktails, then the other half for the remaining 4. It made it easier than measuring out all those tablespoons.

Serves 8

Honey Syrup

Ingredients:

¼ cup clover honey
2 tablespoons hot water

Directions:

1. Combine honey and hot water in a small jar. Cover and shake to dissolve honey.

I hate the weekend.

Whaaaa???

We can forgive Tacocat for that song title since they eloquently back up their viewpoint in this catchy, surferpop-style tune.

Check out Tacocat on Facebook where you can learn of upcoming world tour dates. You can buy their music here.

Cheers!
