The Strength and Honor Cocktail at Royalton.

We can't even begin to start toasting all the tremendous athletes and their medals in the London Olympic Games: swimmer Missy Franklin, gymnast Jordyn Weiber, gymnast Gabby Douglas, the list goes on and on. While we know that some of these athletes are well underage, there's no shame in toasting an Olympic-themed drink to them. Thanks to the Forty Four at Royalton in New York City, the appropriately named Strength and Honor cocktail uses gin and homemade honey syrup.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
