Bumble Bee


The Bumble Bee cocktail is a delicious concoction that has been buzzing around the cocktail scene for decades. While its exact origins are not known, it became popular in the mid-20th century during the heyday of creative cocktail culture. Bartenders of the time created this sweet and slightly potent drink to capture the essence of summer.


The main ingredients of the cocktail are honey and rum. These ingredients are not only known for their different flavors, but also for their natural sweetness. Much like the bumble bee, which is associated with the sweetness of honey and the spirited nature of rum, the cocktail embodies the harmony of these flavors.


Which rum for Bumble Bee Cocktail?

There are two popular versions of the Bumble Bee cocktail. One is based on dark rum, the other on white rum. Both offer a unique taste, with the dark rum version having a richer, deeper character, while the white rum version is lighter and more refreshing.


Bumble Bee cocktail recipe

Ingredients (for 2 servings):

  • 12 cl rum (dark rum or white rum)
  • 4 cl lemon juice
  • 6 cl honey syrup
  • 2 lemon zests


Preparation:

  1. Pour the rum, lemon juice and honey syrup into a shaker with ice cubes. Shake vigorously.
  2. Strain into two chilled cocktail glasses. Garnish each with lemon zest.

Pro tip: Looking for a fruity variation? Simply garnish the cocktail with a slice of orange instead of lemon zest.


The Bumble Bee cocktail is best enjoyed on warm summer days or as a delicious nightcap. Its sweet and slightly alcoholic profile makes it the perfect cocktail for those who appreciate a balanced cocktail. It's a great choice for a garden party, a great way to add a little sunshine to your day.

Für mich geht nichts über das Entdecken kleiner Manufakturen. Ob das der Micro Craft Brauer aus Bayern oder die sächsische Brennerei ist, die es bereits seit Jahrzehnten gibt - hauptsache klein, regional verwurzelt und mit Sinn für's Handwerk!
