TOM TOM’S KENTUCKY MUFFIN
This is one of my favorite cocktails to serve in the Fall and Winter as it has all these festive Autumnal flavors reminiscent of a Hot Toddy, yet maintains a fun, bright sparkle of Ginger Beer and Champagne that’s perfect for holiday gatherings and elegant soirées. When we were opening Tom Tom I knew we had to have a cocktail named after my mother’s hilarious line on Vanderpump Rules and, thus, the Kentucky Muffin was born! Enjoy it at home or by visiting Tom Tom!

1. To rim your glass with bee pollen, take a small brush (or paper towel) and smear the side of the glass lightly with honey. Add a touch of bee pollen (not a lot!) to a fine sieve and dust it over the side of the glass. Shake it off.

3. Shake vigorously.
