Honey Bee

Honey Bee cocktail with rum and honey syrup

Like its sister, the Honeysuckle, the Honey Bee doesn’t have much of a history that we could find, outside of a passing mention in David Embry’s The Fine Art of Mixing Drink back in 1948.

This drink deserves more publicity. Of all the honey-sour type drinks we’ve tried, this one undoubtedly has the most character; honey is a surprising, charming complement to the oaky vanilla notes of a good Jamaican dark rum. We’ve had good results using honey varieties that would overwhelm other drinks – mesquite and orange blossom have been especially delightful.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. You might want to double-strain to remove the little bits of lemon pulp.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
