Maridel (Mississippi)

Renée G.


Anyone who has ever ransacked a honeysuckle bush to find a few drops of the sweet nectar will understand the allure of the Maridel (a traditional southern girls’ name). Mississippi made honeysuckle vodka mingles with lime juice, fresh basil and cucumber syrup to conjure up springtime right in your hand. This is a popular cocktail of the Parlor Market, in Jackson, Mississippi.

Be sure to check out the Honey Child Cocktail which is also made with Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka.
