Cat’s Pajamas {cucumber gin cocktail}

What do you get when you take the Bee’s Knees and add cucumber and infuse the honey with fennel? This cucumber gin cocktail that is The Cat’s Pajamas, duh.

Cat's Pajamas : a cucumber gin cocktail with fennel infused honey

This is one of my favorite after Sunday brunch shift cocktails right now. It’s light, and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. After 5ish hours of making Bloody Mary’s and various fizz cocktails, I want my drink to be easy. And that’s what this cucumber gin cocktail is – as long as I already have the fennel infused honey on hand. Hint: make some of that now.
