The Bourbon Beehive

“Currently we’re seeing the cocktail world mirror the greater culinary trends of the locavore movement. That alone is something that I wanted to incorporate when making this beverage. The idea of using fresh seasonal and regional ingredients is something that inspired me to create this drink. Using our in-house hydroponic garden mixed with a few trials and errors, this savory drink took its form.” – Erika De La Cruz, creator of the Bourbon Beehive.
