Talk about one sweet and spicy buzz…

The bee sting is a martini-style cocktail with quite a little surprise. It’s yellow hue looks tangy-sweet, and it is with the honey syrup and lemon. But underneath is a nasty little sting from muddled jalapeño pepper. It’s a cocktail that’ll no doubt have you and your guests humming for more.
