Bee Raw Kitchen: Honey Cocktails with Gin

When life hands you gin, make a honey cocktail.

Even better if that gin comes from Standard Wormwood Distillery, a Brooklyn-based, small-batch distillery dedicated to experimenting with wormwood, one of the key ingredients in traditional absinthe.

We recently met the masterminds behing Standard Wormwood, and, always up for an adventure, brought some of their Wormwood Gin back to the office.

Grilling with Honey: An American Tradition

Few activities evoke American leisure time more than grilling, but can Americans lay claim to inventing the technique? In a word, no. Grilling, when the term is used loosely, dates back to shortly after the discovery of fire by our ancient ancestors—some 500,000 to one million years ago, well before Dad started flipping burgers in the backyard.

Scallop Ceviche

scallop

Ceviche is a seafood dish traditional throughout Latin and South America — where seafood is abundant and the weather is hot. The fish is cured by the addition of citrus.  Use only the freshest seafood available. If scallops aren't at the market, halibut or any other firm white-fleshed fish will do. Spanish Pimenton, a pantry staple in our house, gives the ceviche a hint of smoke and dash of color.

The Bee Raw Three-Way?



No, we're not getting x-rated, we're talking football food. And whether you're rooting for Baltimore or San Francisco—or just watching for the commercials—this year, the Superbowl is a great excuse for a threeway. Threeway wings that is—Bee Raw style. As in three ways to spice up your tailgate party with an easy and fast wings trio.

Fast and easy, we bake them all at once, divide them into three batches and toss them in three different sauces and serve with an even faster and easy homemade blue cheese dip. 

Instructions
Cut 6 pounds of fresh or defosted wings in half if they are whole. Spread evenly on three separate baking trays. Toss wings in canola oil to coat them. Preheat oven to 375°F. Bake wings for 35-40 minutes. Prep sauces and dips ( see BeeRaw.com for recipes). Remove one tray at a time and coat using the first bowl of sauce. Return to oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes. Remove one tray at a time and coat using second bowl of sauce. Place all wings on serving tray(s). Garnish Soy, Honey & Ginger Wings with chopped scallion and toasted sesame seeds.

Serve, sit back and savor. —Zeke
