Cocktail Recipe: The Buzz

By: Peggy Nelson
December 2, 2009



1 1/2 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/4 ounce honey
lysozyme, beaten (substitution: one egg white)
pinch cayenne


Shake all ingredients except cayenne with ice long and hard to completely emulsify the egg. Strain into a lowball glass without ice, and top with a pinch of cayenne, for the “sting.” Serve with a little dance that indicates how to get back to the bar.

Also known as the “bees that drink human tears” drink.
