Honey and bourbon go together like peas and carrots. Maybe you have a little cold. Maybe you're sick of the cold. This cocktail promises to warm you to the core as if you're in the center of the apiary in the middle of July. We call this drink the "Boozy Bee," made with soothing wildflower honey, smooth bourbon, and vitamin C. This and a little rest work together to make you feel (almost) like new.
Make sure that you don't overdo it with the cocktails! One drink should be just enough to have you feeling a little better in the dead of winter. Honey and bourbon both will soothe a sore throat, at least temporarily. Vitamin C kills the immune system needed to help fight your illness. Honey may boost your immune system. However, more professional research does need to be done on this topic. We aren't doctors. If you're feeling under the weather, it would be best to see your medical practitioner.
