Bee Sting shot Recipe

It is relatively rare to drink a Scotch beverage rather than bourbon or rye drink, but more prevalent than the more common whiskey drinks. Apart from Blood & Sand, the Rusty Nail is another popular blended drink that combines scotch (no matter how blended or single malt it is) with Drambuie, a sweet herbal liqueur based on scotch. A Bee Sting from bartending veteran Jonathan Pogash is a bit like a mix between a Rusty Nail and a Scotch Sour. This whisky combines Laphroaig – a lauded single malt from storm-beaten Islay – with Bärenjäger – a honey liqueur from Germany. The name Bear Hunter comes from an 18th-century German recipe used to lure bears, meaning it is based on an 18th-century German recipe (and has no relationship to Jägermeister, which means master hunter). The botanical sweetness and rich flavor of Bärenjäger add considerably to the already layered whisky, and it pairs beautifully.
