I visited the Boston General Store (aka my new favorite storefront) a few weeks ago and spotted Bee Raw’s Honey Flights. I thought, what a perfect gift!

I didn’t have the chance to grab one at the time, but now I’m super excited to partner with Bee Raw to bring you some of my favorite quick and easy honey cocktails made with their Fruit Varietal Honey Flight.

Sure, you can gift honey for just about anyone to add in their tea, recipes, smoothies, etc. However, I want to show you how you can gift it for your friend who’s always entertaining a crowd, the host(ess) with the mostess – you get it.

Let me tell you, not drinking all of these at the same time was tough. But, I persevered just for you.

I love all of these beverages in their own way; they’re light and fresh, but super easy to make – even for those of you who stick to the basics (like vodka + cran, but let’s not even go there). This was also my first time using honey in cocktails and now I’m kicking myself for not thinking of it sooner. Luckily, I still have lots of honey to test out new honey cocktails with!
