The new Natural Science Bar offers simple takes on classic cocktails, a sophisticated wine program plus a rotating selection of local beers. “I’m not trying to overwhelm my bartenders — it’s not really a cocktail bar. It’s about making friends over drinks,” says Lucius Cyrus in our May 2024 issue. One of those reinvented classic cocktails found on the menu is the Drink & Be Merry, a riff off a Bee’s Knees. Here’s how to make it.

Natural Science Bar’s Drink & Be Merry


2 ounces Beefeater Gin
½ ounce fresh lemon juice
½ ounce rosemary-infused honey syrup

Directions Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary.
