This impetuous sounding cocktail caught me off guard. Flaming Youth brings back memories of spontaneity and reckless abandon. Ah, the good ole days. The name alone makes this the perfect pairing cocktail for birthdays and Girl’s Night Out gatherings. It will possibly bring out the best ‘remember when’ stories.
2 ounces Gin
1 ounce Heavy Cream
1/2 ounce Honey
Combine liquids in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously to blend and chill. Strain into chilled martini glass. Serve immediately. Lightly flavored gins work best for this particular recipe.
Flaming Youth is surprisingly light in sweetness and flavor, which will allow one to taste firsthand what all the buzz and hype are with the return of honey in cocktail recipes. Flaming Youth comes across as innocent white froth with barely there notes of cinnamon spice in the background. Very nice.
