The Honey Bee

Cynthia Sin-Yi Cheng

Celia is featuring Jimmy Bradley of The Red Cat this month. I happen to have my own Red Cat tale to share. On Cam’s (my former personal trainer) last visit, we spent a lovely evening there, lingering till closing. As the bar emptied out, we witnessed some regulars custom ordering a cocktail: the Honey Bee. Incredibly fun and generous, they not only shared glasses of their nightcap with us but also passed on the mix:

Honey Bee (courtesy of R. Iles):*
1½ oz 10 Cane Rum
2 teaspoon honey
¾ oz fresh lime juice

Microwave rum for 30 seconds.
Stir honey and rum into cocktail shaker.
Add lime juice.
Shake, strain and pour into a flute.
