How To Make The Bee Sting Cocktail
The Bee Sting cocktail is a sweet and refreshing drink that’ll have you buzzing in no time. Here’s how to make it:
- Hard Cider
- 1.5 oz Mead
To start, you’ll need to rim your glass with honey, sugar, and cinnamon. Dip the rim of your glass into a plate with honey, then dip it into another plate with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. This will give your drink a sweet and spicy kick that’ll perfectly complement the flavors of the cider and mead.
Next, fill your glass with ice and pour in 1.5 oz of your favorite mead. Mead is a honey wine that’s been around for centuries. It’s made by fermenting honey with water and yeast, and the result is a sweet and delicious drink that pairs perfectly with cider.
Finally, top your glass off with hard cider. You can use any brand of hard cider, but I recommend using a dry cider as opposed to a sweet one. This will balance out the sweetness of the mead and provide a nice crisp finish to your drink.
If you want to get fancy, you can garnish your drink with a slice of apple or a sprig of thyme. This will give your drink an extra pop of flavor and make it look even more appealing.
