Mellow Bee

Last night on the way home I bought a bottle of Lustau East India Solera, a rich, complex sherry that paired nicely with the Hacienda Vieja tequila I happened to have around. The East India is a great ingredient in this drink, though that bottle of Harveys will work fine.

Mellow Bee
  • 2 oz reposado tequila
  • 1 oz East India Solera sherry
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1 tsp honey syrup (or 1/2 tsp honey melted 2-3 seconds in the microwave)
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

I kept trying to put a twist on this to go with the lemon and couldn’t figure out why the balance would suddenly drop out of gear. Better ungarnished.
