*Pro tip: if your honey has crystallized, you can microwave it in a microwave-safe dish to melt it.

2. Add the 5-6 dashes of grapefruit bitters.

3. Mix the bitters and honey to dissolve the honey.

4. Pour 2 oz. of bourbon.

5. Add the bourbon and a large ice cube, then gently stir to combine.

7. Take a mint leaf and clap it to release its aromas.

8. Garnish your drink. Bonus points if you can get the garnish to sit on top of the ice cube. 😉
