Imbibing Mr. Boston: Bee’s Kiss Cocktail

IMG_3016“The bee’s kiss, now! / Kiss me as if you entered gay / My heart at some noonday.” – Robert Browning

Another early cocktail from the prohibition days, undoubtedly inspired by the “Bee’s Knees” cocktail.  This is actually pretty tasty, and a good argument for using honey syrups in cocktails.  You get a lot more flavor than just using sugar.  Serving this in a champagne flute also gives it an air of elegance.  If you wanted to go the extra mile, you could garnish this with a piece of honeycomb (the real thing, not the breakfast cereal).

Bee’s Kiss
1.5oz light rum
1oz heavy cream
0.75oz honey syrup

Shake and strain into a chilled champagne flute.
