So, in a random impulse purchase at the liquor store I bought a bottle of Seagram's 7 Dark Honey. This goes along with my bottle of Barenschweiger (sp?) and Wild Turkey American Honey. After acquiring 3 bottles of honey liqueur and/or whiskey I thought I had better figure out some drink recipes.

We assume all of our readers are bright enough to come up with the obvious mixers like Coke or what have you. May we suggest using cream soda? We've been through a number of brands after J's initial (and inspired) suggestion. The current favorite is Jones Cream Soda using real cane sugar. Throw some ice in a glass, throw some cream soda in, and top off with a generous amount of Seagram's Dark Honey. Adjust the booze/ice/cream soda ratio to your liking.

I might also suggest making a variation of an Irish Coffee. Here's your ingredient list:

  • 2 tablespoon(s) whipped cream
  • 1 oz. Seagram's 7 Dark Honey
  • 3 oz. fresh brewed coffee
  • 1 tsp. honey
You should, if you drink at all, be able to figure out how it's assembled.

While we're on the topic, we also heartily suggest using the Jones Cream Soda with other mixers. Take a highball glass and add a shot of 3 Olives Cherry Vodka, a shot of Stoli Vanil, and top off with the Jones. It's very nice. A shot of the Stoli Vanil works well with the Jones, too. You may find other uses if you try.
