Make the signature drink of one of the country’s premiere cocktail shindigs at home.
The San Antonio Cocktail Conference is one of the country’s premier cocktail shindigs, and each year, ahead of the event, its annual signature drink is announced. The 2019 SACC cocktail is Call Me, Honey. It’s a sweet and bright drink served cold and punctuated with kick of dark spice. We have the recipe below.
Call Me, Honey
1 green cardamom pod
2 ounces Deep Eddy Vodka (or preferred vodka)
½ ounce lemon juice
1 ounce orange juice
½ ounce honey syrup*
Lemon wheel, for garnish
Cinnamon powder, for garnish
Muddle cardamom pod in cocktail shaker. Add remaining ingredients and two ice cubes. Shake. Strain into chilled rocks glass filled with ice. Garnish with lemon wheel dusted with cinnamon.
* 2 parts honey to 1 part boiling water that is stirred and let to cool.
