Alice’s Garden

Made by Jena Lane Ellenwood

I love the brewers in my community! Queens, NY is known as the World’s Borough and I love celebrating that through flavor!! I’ve been drinking Big Alice Brewing beer since their beginnings as a local CSA bottle program and I’m still in love with them! Not only do I love their brews, I love using them in fun ways—like making a cocktail with this amazing gin from LA! Morgan, the distiller, uses botanicals native to the region and some even came from her garden!

Let’s Get Shakin’


2 torn basil leaves

1/4 oz honey syrup (3:1 honey to water, using Wilk Apiary)

1 oz Gin (using AMASS Dry Gin)

1 Big Alice Sour Slammer


Add honey syrup, gin, and basil leaves into cocktail shaker, and shake with 2 ice cubes.

Strain into coup glass, and top with Big Alice Sour Slammer.

Garnish with one basil leaf.
