3⁄4 oz Pisco
3⁄4 oz Cachaça
1⁄2 oz Campari
1⁄2 oz Swedish Punsch
1⁄2 oz Lime juice
1⁄8 oz Cinnamon syrup
3 dr Bitters, Angostura (As garnish)

Shake once without ice and once with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe or single old fashioned glass, and garnish with drops of Angostura Bitters.


I became intrigued by the Campari-Swedish punsch combination in the Sleeping With Strangers, and I decided to take it in the direction of the South American Honey Bee with pisco, cachaça, lime, and egg white. It needed a little more pizazz and a touch of sweetness to balance, so I added in some cinnamon syrup that worked well with Swedish punsch in the Oaxacan Punch. For a name, I took the original inspiration in the direction of a Rick Springfield song title.
