Ben Franklin

Presented by The Mint Gastropub


  • 1 1/2 oz. bourbon
  • 3/4 oz. Straight, No Chaser mead from The Colony Meadery 
  • 1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. honey simple syrup*
  • Wide strip of lemon peel for garnish


Briefly shake all ingredients (except lemon peel) with ice and strain into a glass containing one large ice cube. Garnish with lemon peel and enjoy.

*Warm equal amounts of honey and water, stirring until blended. Pour into a glass jar and
store in the fridge. (Make a good quantity since this simple syrup can be used to sweeten everything from cocktails to coffee.)

Note: A longtime mainstay on The Mint’s list of captivating cocktails, this drink is a nod to Benjamin Franklin’s reputed fondness for mead.
