Bahama Bob's Honey Wind

     Summertime is for minty fun cocktails.  This is the time for a "sweetart" kind of drink that is refreshing and fun.  Give this one a try for your weekend get together on the patio or the boat, you will enjoy it.  I always enjoy the summer cocktail fare.

Bahama Bob's Honey Winds
  • 1 1/2 Doorly’s XO Rum

  • ½ oz. Bahama Bob’s Honey Syrup 
  • Top with Sparkling Ice Pink Grapefruit

     Combine Doorly’s XO Rum, mint leaves and honey syrup in a shaker tin with ½ filled with ice and give it a quickly shake to bruise the mint. Pour into a glass tumbler add ice to the top and top up with Sparkling Ice Pink Grapefruit and more ice if needed. Dash the bitters on top, slap the mint sprigs with your hands to bring out the oilsand place in the glass as a garnish.

     In a sauce pan, place equal parts of honey and water, bring it to a biol, stirring until the honey is all dissolved. turn down and simmer for about two to three minutes.   Allow to cool and place in a suitable container and keep refrigerated until you use it.
