Mixologist Brett Butler creates prohibition inspired ‘Bee Sting’ cocktail using local honey

This prohibition classic cocktail has now been “alcomized”!

Wednesday on “Life.Style.Live!” Brett W. Butler, owner/operator of ALCOMY LLC., joined us with a recipe for a “Bee Sting,” a drink inspired by the ‘Bees’s Knees” cocktail.

One of the ingredients he used was honey from Eagle Creek Apiary, that was also featured on today’s show.

“Bee Sting”


  • 2 oz.  Hard Truth Distillery Gin
  • .5  oz.  Ancho Reyes Liqueur
  • .75 oz.  Fresh lemon juice
  • .75 oz.  Eagle Creek Apiary Hickory Smoked- Habanero Honey Syrup
  • 2-3 Sprigs of Rosemary


Add the rosemary, lemon juice and honey syrup to a cocktail shaker and muddle for about 30 seconds.  Add ice and the rest of the ingredients and shake vigorously for about 20 seconds.  Strain over ice into a coupe glass.  Garnish with a bee pollen rim and fresh honeycomb.  Enjoy!
