Bee’s Kiss

Bee's Kiss cocktail with rum, heavy cream, and honey syrup

The Bee’s Kiss is a rich, creamy cocktail with just a kiss of honey. It first debuted in Trader Vic’s Book of Food and Drink from 1946. Trader Vic’s version produced a very small drink, with just a hint of honey and cream, but we prefer this amped-up recipe we found on the Bartending Pretty website.

Since it has so much heavy cream in it, this is a drink that needs vigorous shaking, to keep it from ending up too flat and heavy in the glass.

Trader Vic recommended a Cuban light rum, but we think an aged rum plays up the honey flavor a bit better – your call.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
