This cocktail was first featured in our story on honey in cocktails.
Made for World Class in Miami, Bowie found the inspiration for this drink from a famous image of the Freedom Tower in Miami, coloured in yellow and black. The vermouth has a base of mead rather than wine and is seasoned with bee pollen, saffron, toasted coconut and classic vermouth botanicals.

20ml Bee pollen mead vermouth*
20ml Egg white
15ml Lemon juice
10ml Banana liqueur
5ml Pomegranate syrup
Shake the drink as you would any with egg white, strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a lemon twist (discard) and a sprinkling of bee pollen for the aroma.
