The Fine Feller Cocktail

This recipe from bartender Daniel Hyatt finally gives you a way to work pine needles into your cocktail routine. It’s essentially iced tea with a kick, offering well-balanced sweetness and subtle evergreen flavor. Christmas trees, beware!



  • For the evergreen honey syrup:
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup chopped pine, spruce, or Douglas fir needles, preferably young tips
  • 2 cups raw honey
  • For the cocktail:
  • 2 ounces rye whiskey
  • 3/4 ounce evergreen honey syrup
  • 3/4 ounce apple cider
  • 3/4 ounce brewed Darjeeling tea, chilled
  • Lemon peel for garnish
It's only fair to share...
