Review:

Rich honey balances tart lemon juice over a characterful rum-base.

Variant:

With light rum this drink becomes a Honeysuckle, and with gin in place of rum, it becomes a Bee's Knees.

History:

Recipe adapted from 1949 edition of Esquire's Handbook for Hosts: "1 part honey, 4 parts Bacardi, 1 part lemon juice. Mix well, then add ice and shake."
