This creamy after-dinner cocktail is an adaptation of a gin-based cocktail named the Bee’s Knees. While both are shaken with honey, this version has rum swapped in for the gin, and uses heavy cream instead of lemon juice.
1 1/2 ounceslight rum
1 ounceheavy cream
Whole nutmeg, for grating
Place a cocktail glass in the freezer to chill.
Place the rum, cream, and honey in a cocktail shaker. Add ice to fill the shaker halfway, cover, and shake until the outside is frosted, about 30 seconds.
Strain into the chilled glass and top with freshly grated nutmeg.
