Queen Bee

The Queen Bee cocktail is pure alcohol – three and a half ounces of it, to be precise. This makes it a wonderful aperitif, especially because it’s a bit on the sweet side. This cocktail blends lime vodka with coffee liqueur – a surprising combination, but it can become addictive.

This is also a nice cocktail for unwinding at the end of a rough day.

  • 2 ounces lime vodka
  • 1 ounce Tia Maria
  • 1/2 ounce dry sherry

Shake the ingredients together in a shaker with ice cubes, and strain into a martini glass. You could leave in the ice cubes to weaken the drink a little, if you prefer. Garnish with a lime wedge or a few coffee beans dropped into the drink.
