Bee-mosa: Champagne and Honey cocktail

Recently I was at the charming Marion Street Cheese Market in downtown Oak Park. While ogling the shelves and cases of gourmet delights, I saw a small sign next to a display of honeycomb. On it was a recipe for a Bee-mosa...

Marion Street Market Bee-mosa

1 tsp honeycomb
5 oz dry sparkling wine

Add the honeycomb to a champagne flute. Top with chilled sparkline wine.

Honey straight from the honeycomb is so delicious, and it blends beatifully with dry sparkling wine. What an elegant yet fun cocktail for a brunch, luncheon, or shower!


Now, I did notice a problem when I made it as above...bits of wax floated to the top, which then got stuck in my teeth. Not cute! So, I propose a variation: instead of putting the honeycomb into a flute right away, drop it into any container, and add the sparkling wine. The wax will then float to the top. Let it stand for a few minutes and then strain it into a champagne flute, catching all the bits of honeycomb. Enjoy!
