Every Friday, Mike Augustyniak will be picking up a new cocktail recipe from a local mixologist. Throughout October, he’s getting his inspirations from Dustin House. This week’s selection: The Russian Honeybee.

Ingredients
1.5oz of Honey Vodka (preferably infused)
2.5oz of Cider Beer
2.5oz of Apple Juice
Garnish: 1 Green Apple Wedge

Directions
Shake vodka and apple juice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a highball filled with ice. Top with cider beer. Garnish with an apple wedge.

Taste Test
I’m not a big fan of honey in general, but I didn’t really pick up on the taste of honey in this drink. You could easily substitute your favorite unflavored vodka in place of the honey-infused vodka, because the cider gives this drink most of its flavor. The sweetness is there, though, and this went down dangerously smooth.
