Spicy Honey Margarita


No need for triple sec here—the honey does all the sweetening for you. And with that sugary coating out of the picture, your tongue gets a full tour of what we're really here for: tequila and lime. (If you still miss that orange note, add a splash of orange bitters or a twist of a peel to finish!)

Before you begin, you'll need to make a honey syrup. Add equal parts Bees Knees and hot water to a pot and whisk over low heat until you have one smooth liquid.

This recipe makes one drink, but the ratio remains the same to batch for a group. (Skip the shaking and serve over ice instead.) Just grab a pitcher and a calculator and you'll have an instant party! 

 

 

1 ounce lime juice
1⁄2 ounce Bees Knees Spicy Honey syrup (see note above)
2 ounces blanco tequila
Salt and lime wedge for garnish

Rub a lime wedge around rim of a rocks glass and dip in salt.

Add lime juice and honey syrup to a cocktail shaker. Add tequila and plenty of ice. Shake vigorously until frosty. Strain into prepared rocks glass filled with more ice. Garnish with lime wedge.
