One of my favourite discoveries when reading the Baileys Prize shortlist was The Bees by Laline Paull. I’ve been recommending it to everyone! So imagine my joy to discover a cocktail that combines this book with Baileys… meet the Baileys honey bee!

You will need:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Cocktail glass


  • 75ml Baileys
  • 25ml whisky
  • 12.5ml honey

How to make it:

Add all the ingredients in to the cocktail shaker and add the ice on top. Shake until creamy and all the honey has blended. Strain and serve chilled in a cocktail glass. For an added flourish, add a small cube of honeycomb to garnish!

The whisky means this isn’t a too-sweet cocktail, but you certainly have to be a Baileys lover to drink it. Show off and use it as an after-dinner drink instead of a standard Baileys.
