YES my Mom and sister stopped at the liquor store and bought all these ingredients so we can enjoy one or two on the deck today!!!!

Inspiration for new cocktails comes from unexpected places! Take this Leland Palmer by Damon Boelte, bar manager at Prime Meats in Brooklyn.

He says, "I was in LA visiting and in the morning enjoying my favorite hangover drink, the Arnold Palmer, while watching an episode of Twin Peaks (loved that show) where Leland Palmer almost whacks Agent Cooper with a golf club. Sometimes things just make's definitely better than a golf club to the head."


1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup hot water

3 cups freshly brewed tea, cooled

3/4 cup gin (I use vodka)

3/4 cup Limoncello (I use a gallon)

3/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1/2 cup fresh grapefruit juice

1 cup cold club soda


lemon slices for garnish

Stir honey and hot water in a bowl until honey dissolves. Cool completely. Combine honey mix, tea, gin or vodka, limoncello, lemon juice and grapefruit juice in a pitcher. Add club soda and stir.

Fill six tall glasses or mason jars with ice. Divide and add lemon slices to each cocktail.

Happy Friday!
