Back to School Honey Snacks for Kids!

Posted by Sarah Young on August 18, 2013 0 Comments

It's that time of year again when the summer heat is at its hottest, the electric bills are at their highest, and the air is filled with the excited energy of "back to school" time. The month of August means new haircuts, papers and pens, plastic bins and baggies, new flashy backpacks, and the latest lunch box $10 can offer. While the youthful tastes of today are as ever changing as a Disney channel soap opera, the classics never do. Nowadays, kids drool over fruity fruit rollups riddled with tongue tattoos, and mystery gushers with surprising sour-tastic flavors. But honey has been around since as early as 2100 B.C., and this insect byproduct still continues to impress! Check out these crafty recipes below that make making sweet snacks fun and healthy!

The Bee's Knees Cocktail

This wonderful cocktail recipe is appropriated from http://postprohibition.com

I can count on one hand the amount of times that men and women alike have willingly discussed the same topic in poplar culture. Most often, this is because men are fascinated when honored athletes are caught using performance enhancement drugs and women are concerned with plastic surgeries, break-ups, and betrayals. However, once in a blue moon, Venus and Mars align to discuss the scandals of popular culture...together. That being said, the new Great Gatsby film directed by Baz Luhrmann is one of them. En lieu of F. Scott Fitzgerlad's wondrous novel and portrayal of the 1920's era during the prohibition, why not toast to its honor with a fancy cocktail? This Bee's Knees Cocktail is crisp, clean, and oh so "Gatsby". Set the scene at your next spring party with the "Bee's Knees Cocktail", Roaring Twenties attire, and songs by Jay-Z and Andre 3000 playing softly in the distance.

 

RECIPE

  • 2 oz Bar Hill Gin
  • 3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz Cloister Honey: Vanilla Infused, simple syrup 1:1
  • Garnish with a lemon twist
