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.
