  • Why 2oz? The perfect base for our mystical concoction, 2 ounces is just enough to let the vodka's neutral spirit carry the other flavors without the booze taking over the forest party. Too little, and the drink is a wallflower; too much, and it's the overbearing party crasher.

Mushroom-infused Honey

  • A sweet enchanter! 1oz balances the vodka and adds a whisper of earthiness without shouting over the lemon's zing. Miss it out, and the drink loses its woodland essence. Use a floral honey variant for a different 'bloom' in your potion.

Lemon Juice

  • The zesty referee! 1oz gives a tangy contrast to the sweetness and complements the fungus among us. Less juice and the cocktail could become a mushroom-heavy hermit; more, and it’s sour grapes at the fairy gathering.

Ice Cubes

  • The chill factor! Melts into the background, keeping everything cool and balanced. Without it, you're stuck in a warm bog; with it, you're sipping by a brisk brook.

Edible Mushroom Garnish

  • The final flourish! It's the 'open sesame' to the cocktail's theme. No mushroom garnish, and it's like finding a fairy ring without the fairies. Plus, it's a snack! Just don't mix up your toadstools and your table mushrooms!

In case you forgot basics how to make Forest Fungi Delight

Add your ingredients to the shaker first, then ice. Fill it up to ¾ of its capacity to ensure enough space for shaking. Hold the shaker with both hands (one on the top and one on the bottom) and shake vigorously. The shake should come from your shoulders, not your wrists.

Place your chosen strainer on top of the shaker or mixing glass, ensuring a secure fit. Pour the cocktail into a glass through the strainer, which will catch solid ingredients and ice. If double straining, hold the fine mesh strainer between the shaker and the glass.
