I Mead Ah Diffusion  Brett Henderson The Poynt

1 oz. 1634 Strawberry Fields Mead (Ipswich)
1 oz. Yellow Chartreuse 
1/2 oz. Bully Boy Vodka
1/2 oz. House Lemon Cordial (see recipe below)
1 wheel of lemon
1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously. 
2. Strain over a coupe-style glass heaped with freshly crushed ice.
3. Center a straw through the ice to the bottom of the glass. With a squirt bottle pour 1/4 oz. Giffard Cassis through the straw.
4. Garnish with a large sprig of lemon balm.

+ To enjoy with friends, quadruple the recipe, heap a scorpion bowl–style glass with ice, and serve with four straws. A martini glass or a beer goblet is a good alternative if no coupe is available. The recipe will fill an 8- to 10-ounce glass when strained over crushed ice. Henderson says crushing is easy at home with a blender.

House Lemon Cordial

1 c. fresh lemon juice
1 c. Demerara sugar
1/2 c. Limoncello
2 c. warm water

1. Combine ingredients
