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.
