Bourbon and Honey

Maggie May Schill


Bourbon and honey is a southern classic.
It was once considered a "women's drink". But in my opinion, it is just an awesome drink.
I add thyme to my version because it makes the woodiness of the bourbon mellow and the honey pop.

I highly suggest quality bourbon. If you are spending less that $30 for a bottle of bourbon, you quite possibly might be drinking gut-rot.
Life is too short for bad whiskey. Use the good stuff.
In my opinion, a fruity, floral nose, medium finish bourbon goes best with this recipe.
I love Angel's Envy, 4 Roses single barrel, or Dickles in this cocktail.

How to Make Bourbon and Honey


  1. In a small sauce pan, combine lemon juice, honey and thyme. Bring to a boil. Remove thyme, then chill.
  2. Choose a quality bourbon (NOT a Jack Daniels grade. In my opinion, life is too short for subpar whiskey.)
  3. Chill two tumblers in the freezer.
    Divide chilled lemon juice/honey mixture between the two tumblers. Stir in 2 shots (or more?) per tumbler.
    Serve with a spring of thyme in the glass.
