Honey Bee

Today we're drinking the Honey Bee, a cocktail that is quite similar to The Bee's Knees, though with rum instead of gin (and the addition of water).  Also, it's worth noting that this is another cocktail recipe taken from Esquire's fantastic online catalogue of drinks.  Tuesday's cocktail, the McCrory, was another Esquire find.  If you've never been to the site, I highly recommend checking it out (available here).


Honey Bee

1/2 tablespoon honey
1/2 tablespoon water
2 ounces white rum
1/2 ounce lemon juice

Put the honey and warm water in a cocktail shaker and stir it until the honey is thoroughly dissolved. Add the white rum* and lemon juice, then shake viciously with cracked ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. If this is too dry, or if you're feeling charitable and generous of spirit, g'ahead and add a little more honey. Drink how ya like.

*According to Embury, this makes it a Honeysuckle; a Honey Bee requires dark, Jamaican-style rum. Esquire's 1949 Handbook for Hosts disagrees. We'll go with Esquire.


This is a nice drink, and is quite similar to other rum plus lemon juice cocktails we've tried in the past.  Lemon juice and gin is an easy, reliable flavor combination.

This drink is sweet, but not too sweet, and as the recipe indicates, you should use more or less honey to your preference.  With the summer winding down, this may be one of the few remaining cold drinks we can consume before the days become too cold for BBQs.  It is, however, ideal for such occasions (BBQs that is). 

I hope everyone has an excellent weekend; for my Hebrew readers, an easy fast; and here's hoping we have at least a couple weeks of stellar weather so we can play some golf.   Cheers!
