#DOTW: Tequila Honeysuckle

It is 73 degrees outside, my friends. I realize it’s going to go back to 40-something tomorrow, but let’s strike while the iron is hot. Tonight, or late this afternoon, or whenever (because it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere), treat yourself to this delicious cocktail. You’re welcome…



What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Don Julio Tequila (or quality Tequila Blanco of your choice)
  • .75 oz Rose’s Lime Juice
  • .75 oz honey syrup

To prepare the honey syrup, add equal amounts of honey and water to a small sauce pan, heat and stir. Let it cool, then combine all ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Shake well, then pour over ice in a cocktail glass.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
