Mixed drinks with honey

35 posts in this topic

Continuing with Daiquiri variations, there is also the Bumble Bee with aged rum, lime juice, honey syrup, and egg white.

Very smooth and pleasant. It would be fun to try it again with a different rum; I am thinking Smith & Cross for example.

As a side note, it looks like I may be missing an orange peel and Angostura garnish there. I am not sure if it is intentional or not, but the version in the Bartender's Choice app that I was using did not have it.

Does anyone remember Roz Russell in Auntie Mame, with Jim Backus as the jumped up potential

FIL? He "always put honey in my dacquiris!" and the "cool kids" mocked him about it. How "cool"has changed!

Alex Day's Jalisco Trail from the now-closed Allen and Delancey was a great honey cocktail, never got the recipe but this is what I approximated after having it at the restaurant.

2 blanco tequila

.75 lime

.5 acacia honey syrup

dash or two of Angostura

Shake, strain into a coupe rinsed with Luxardo Bitter (or Campari, which is what I used). Even if this wasn't the exact recipe it is pretty tasty.

This cocktail looks good.

If you are still looking for the exact recipe, it was posted a while back in another thread (see below).

I really like the lux. bitter as an accent. Currently using it at Allen and Delancey in a house cocktail:

Jalisco Trail no. 1

2 oz Herradura Silver

0.75 oz accacia honey syrup (2:1)

0.75 oz lime juice

1 dash angostura

rinse cocktail glass w/ luxardo bitter.

i generally explain luxardo as a midpoint between aperol and campari -- as far as bitterness.

The Bartender's Choice app has something similar without the Luxardo Bitter/Campari rinse and that's what I had last night. Great way to enjoy a good tequila.

 

Juschu cocktail

2 oz Siete Leguas tequila blanco

3/4 oz lime juice

1/2 oz eucalyptus honey syrup (reduced from 3/4)

2 dashes Angostura bitters.

I am wondering what other types of bitters may work well in that cocktail.

Hello- I know of a person who makes a ku ding ( the literal translation of this plant is "bitter nails") infused vodka. I mix it with butter and honey syrup then heat it. :smile:  :smile::smile:
