About this Cocktail

Embrace the chilly weather with North Carolina bartender Gary Crunkleton’s Bumble Bee, a bourbon cocktail fortified with cream, honey, and mole bitters.

Ingredients:
  • 2 oz. high-proof bourbon (Crunkleton prefers Old Grand Dad 114 proof)
  • 1 oz. heavy cream
  • 1 oz. fresh-squeezed lemon juice, from roughly one lemon
  • 1 oz. honey
  • 1 fresh egg white
  • 2 dashes mole bitters*
Preparation:

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass or a cocktail shaker. Shake hard for several minutes, then add ice and shake for two minutes more. Strain into a chilled martini or coupe glass. Serve without ice, garnished with a few shakes of nutmeg.

*While Crunkleton uses Bittermens, mole bitters are available from several other suppliers. And if you can’t find them, he says, substitute Angostura or Peychaud’s.
