Ginger Bee Cocktail

There is no time like the holiday season to indulge in a spiced cocktail. I love whipping up these style of cocktails up for the hubby and I for a date-night in. There is something cozy about spiced cocktails that makes the perfect night cap on a chilly night. This Ginger Bee Cocktail is perfectly balanced, not too sweet and not too spiced. I think it would make a great holiday party drink to serve guests too!

For Honey Ginger Syrup

  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup water
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and cut into pieces
In a small saucepan, combine honey, water and ginger pieces. Bring to a boil, then reduce to low heat and allow to simmer, while occasionally stirring. Let simmer for 35 minutes. Pour the syrup through a strainer into a jar. Discard the ginger pieces and let the syrup cool before sealing the jar. The syrup can store in the fridge for up to 2-3 weeks.
Servings: 2
For cocktail:
  • 4 ounces spiced rum
  • ½ cup lime flavored seltzer water
  • 2 TBS honey ginger syrup
  • 4 ounces apple juice (I prefer apple nectar-it’s a more intense and natural apple flavor


Fill two rocks glasses with crushed ice. Add 2 ounces apple juice or nectar, 2 ounces spiced rum, and 1 tbs honey ginger syrup in each glass. Top with ¼ cup lime seltzer water each. Give them a good stir and serve!
