Blue Bee Bar


It’s always nice to hear from an old friend, and we’re sure you remember our old friend Matt Stache, he of the dangerous implements and dashing decapitations (of Champagne bottles). He chatted with us on Twitter last night about the Gimlet recipe and passed along a handy tip for making an easier-to-mix and incidentally better-for-you bar sugar.


@ Sounds like a delicious gimlet. I’ve got a secret trick for making honey more soluble in cocktails and less “mouthy” #Chemistry

@ heat 1 cup of water. dissolve 1.5 cups cane sugar + 0.5 cups honey. Use half as much as normal bar syrup (since it’s 2x sweet)

@ The addition of sugar and water to the honey bar syrup makes it dissolve more readily in cocktails w/out solidifying #science!

@ Absolutely! Also, try adding 2 vanilla beans to a bottle of vodka for 2wks. Pour off 1/2 cup then add 1/2 cup “honey syrup”

@ That is, remove 1/2 cup from the bottle and add 1/2 cup syrup to the bottle. Haha. Not 1:1 vodka and syrup.

@ Exactly. Less is more. Mixing the resultant liqueur 1:1 w/ coconut water yields an amazing beverage. Dangerously tasty.
