Happy Hour: barrels and bees, London
In honour of National Honey Bee Day, member and Bacardí’s global scotch ambassador, Georgie Bell, teaches us how to make two of her favourite Aberfeldy cocktails – the Golden Dram and Honey Highball – using local honey from New York and London.

2 bar spoons of local honey syrup
2 dashes of Angostura bitters
2 dashes of orange bitters
Pour the honey syrup, bitters and Aberfeldy 12 into a rocks glass, add ice, then stir for around 30 seconds to dilute. Cut and twist orange zest, releasing the oils over the drink, then discard.

Top with chilled chamomile tea
Lemon twist and dried chamomile flower
Add Aberfeldy 12 and honey syrup to a highball glass. Stir to mix the ingredients together, then add cubed ice. Add chilled chamomile tea and stir. Garnish with a lemon twist and a dried chamomile flower.
