2. Fill your mixing glass with cubed ice, place your Boston Shaker tin on top, and give the end a firm tap (don’t forget to test if it is sealed).

3. Shake for 10-15 seconds, allowing the mixture to go from one end of the shaker to the other. Shaking should be fairly vigorous.

History

The Bee's Fuzz is a cocktail dreamed up by Cassandra Randazzo from Urbn in North Park, San Diego. 

Cassandra's Inspiration:
"The Bee's Knees is a classic recipe using honey, lemon, and gin that to me is reminiscent of spring. To tweak it for the fall season, I added the flavor of a classic and common stone fruit, the apricot. I wanted to keep the cocktail from becoming cloyingly sweet, so I chose to substitute about half the honey normally used with an apricot syrup.  The Bee's Fuzz light and botanical, with a nice fruit flavor complemented by the sweetness of honey and the acidity of lemon. All the bees are talking about it."
