The Bee’s Kiss – with Aged Rum

Share this...

Last Updated on July 15, 2020 by The 'Noms.

Made this rum and cream cocktail for National Rum Day, but I think that can be everyday, right? One of our favorite rum cocktail recipes!

 

 

We had spent most of this cloudy summer day perusing through a few antique shops looking for neat bar-ware and photo props to be used in the photos for the blog when Mrs. Nom mentioned that it was National Rum Day.  Of course with us being a blog that focuses a great deal on cocktails, we couldn’t let a day devoted to any good spirit go by with out a cocktail!

 

 

So, we whipped this one up out of a cocktail book we found while antiquing, “The Trader Vic’s Book of Food and Drink” which sounded like nice way to finish off our day.

Rum and Cream

The Bee’s Kiss is a relatively simple cocktail, with only three ingredients needed, but that simplicity can hide the one little catch.  The original recipe calls for the use of straight honey as the sweetener, which can sometimes be a bit hard to work with as the honey will often not dissolve into the rest of the drink, leaving the drink overly boozy and not nearly sweet enough. It play well with the rum!

 

 

Honey can often times be difficult to pour and measure, and when placed in a shaker with ice, can often crystallize, making it nearly impossible to incorporate into the drink.

 

 

 

 

What Ingredients are Needed for the Bee’s Kiss Cocktail?

  • Bee’s Kiss Cocktail
    • Aged Rum
    • Cream
    • Honey Simple Syrup
  • Simple Syrup – Honey
    • Honey
    • Water

 

 

Having worked with honey on a number of other cocktails, we decided to swap out the straight honey for a rich honey syrup which helped balance the drink and give it a nice sweetness.  Incorporating the richness of cream and the sweet floral notes of honey with the smoothness of a nice aged rum, the Bee’s Kiss will definitely put you in the land of Milk and Honey!

 

 

If you are into rum, we hope you try out our Tropical Rum Punch!

Looks delicious! Would you be able to use milk instead of heavy cream, or would that ruin it? Calories.

You could possibly use half and half or whole milk, but you do need the richness of the cream to hold up to the rum. Good luck!
