Pink Honey Bee


Makes 1 beverage

  • 1-1/2 oz. vodka (can substitute spiced rum or citrus vodka)
  • 1 oz. Honey Simple Syrup
  • 2 oz. sweet & sour
  • 1 oz. cranberry juice

Shake with ice and strain into a large cocktail or Martini glass. Garnish with a Maraschino cherry.


Honey Simple Syrup

Makes variable amount as needed

  • Honey
  • Hot water

Mix 4 parts honey to 1 part hot water in a saucepan. Heat gently over medium-low heat until the mixture reaches a simmer. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. To store, transfer the syrup to a squeeze bottle or covered drink pourer for easy pouring. Store at room temperature.

Tip: While mixture is simmering, infuse the syrup with herbs or spices for a light, savory flavor note. Or, add a dash of vanilla extract to make Honey-vanilla Simple Syrup.
