Are you a fan of sweet whiskey drinks? This is one of my favorites. I love the bee theme. My first name, Melissa, means bee, and therefore, I dedicate this drink to me.

for one cocktail:

2 and 1/2 oz. whiskey (I used Jack Daniel’s)

1 and 1/2 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 and 1/2 oz. burnt honey simple syrup (recipe below)

2 teaspoons orange marmalade (I used Bonnie Maman)

a pinch of salt

Place all ingredients in a drink shaker with a handful of ice. Fill a rocks glass with ice and strain contents of drink shaker into glass.

for the burnt honey simple syrup:

1/2 cup raw wildflower or clover honey

1/3 cup water

Heat honey in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir frequently. Once simmering, turn to low and cook for 3 minutes or until deep golden brown. Whisk in the water. Cool completely. This syrup will keep in refrigerator, covered, for 1 month.

Cheers!

~Melissa

    Is this the Melissa from Wellington I met several years ago?

      Hi Warren 🙂

      I’m not from Wellington 🙂 But I do know a Warren from a long time ago. We met in elementary school in a little town in northern Minnesota.

      Best,
      Melissa
