How to make the 75 & Sunny Cocktail
Coat the tarragon sprigs in Chartreuse and heat carefully over an open flame for about 15 seconds each. Set one “smoked” tarragon sprig aside and muddle the second in a shaker with the Honeydew Honey Syrup. Add the gin, lemon juice, bitters and 2 tsp. Yellow Chartreuse, and fill with ice. Shake vigorously and fine-strain into a fluted pilsner glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with the reserved “smoked” tarragon sprig.
*Honeydew Honey Syrup:
Combine 1 cup honey syrup (2 parts honey, 1 part water) and 2 lb. peeled and cubed honeydew melon in a blender. Puree until smooth.
