Bitter Bee

Bitter Bee herb cocktail with brown sugar cube, aromatic bitters, mint, vodka, lime juice, and honey syrup

The Bitter Bee was suggested to us by several Cocktail Party users – and after trying one, we totally understand why! It’s a lovely drink, not the least bit bitter, tart, gently sweet, and delightfully herbal and fresh.

The Bitter Bee was created at Milk & Honey in NYC, just another entry in a long legacy of fantastic cocktails from that outfit.

If you don’t have a brown sugar cube, you can substitute a white cube or a teaspoon of dark brown sugar.

Ingredients

Instructions

In a shaker, muddle the sugar cube (or teaspoon of sugar) with the bitters and mint leaves. Add the remaining ingredients and ice and shake well. Strain into a short glass filled with crushed ice. Top with more ice, and soak the new ice with bitters (about 4 dashes). Garnish with a freshly-slapped sprig of mint.
